Being in between jobs can be hard, but you don’t have to face unemployment alone! Channel these Disney characters and you’ll get there in the end!
1. Keeping yourself financially stable
Sometimes you’ll have to do jobs you don’t really want to do just to keep yourself afloat. That doesn’t mean you’ll be stuck doing it forever. Who knows what’s around the corner; your dream job, prince charming, a carriage made from a pumpkin?
2. Making a good first impression
Everyone gets nervous but you can’t let it show. Interviewers can smell fear. Take notes from Stitch and make a good first impression.
3. Showing your leadership abilities
What’s worse than a one-to-one interview? A group interview! Emulate the great Jack Sparrow (minus the rum) and lead your team to victory.
4. Applying for jobs in a male dominated industry
Mulan sure didn’t take no for an answer and neither should you! Get out there and show them what you’re made of you limp noodle!
5. Dressing accordingly
Look at Elsa! Strutting her stuff, accepting who she is, letting things go! That’s what you can do with a smart shirt and fitted blazer!
6. Terms and conditions apply
That great opportunity might not be what you originally thought. Make sure you read each job description carefully and research the company in advance. God forbid you accidentally sign away your life under the sea like Ariel!
7. Being prepared
Scar should have practised what he preached! He certainly wasn’t prepared for his nephew to stroll back up to Pride Rock and call him out for being an awful dictator. Make sure you’re always prepared for competition.
8. Handling rejection
You’ll hear the word no and sometimes you’ll hear nothing at all. Rejection is part of the game. It didn’t stop Ralph though and it shouldn’t stop you!
9. Learning from your mistakes (not running from them!)
Sometimes job interviews don’t always go to plan, but that’s ok! You can’t win them all. If you’re unsuccessful during the application process ask for feedback.
10. Landing your dream job
Once you’ve landed your dream job you’ll work harder than all of Snow White’s seven dwarfs put together! Give yourself a pat on the back, you and your Disney alter egos deserve it!
