job search notes: Dr Seuss says go!

What has Dr Seuss got to do with the job search?
Didn't he write books for children?
Yes, he did. He told a story in a simple manner. There is a message in most of his stories. This is one of a series revealing the message that can help those of us with the job search effort.

The time has come.
The time has come.
The time is now.
Just go!
I don't care how!

This opens Dr Seuss' book "Marvin K Mooney Will You Please Go Now." Marvin is told in so many ways to simply go away. He finally does, when he decides he wants to.

What is the message for us?

Action is required for your job search and only you can take the proper steps to get it going. Procrastination will not help. Get going.

If you lack in confidence, get with someone to help build up your confidence.

Ultimately, the choice is yours. The actions are yours. When you decide, then the job you seek will too be yours!
