But the facts are, as much as I truly sympathize (and it really is very hard to hear that desperation), job seekers must understand that part of running a business is to find the right employees. The right employees are not people who just need ‘a job’. Despite the tough economic times, the right employee is an individual who wants to work at that specific company and plans to stick around for a long time.

Do a job because it’s right for you, not because someone else ‘picked’ it for you. Each job you hold is a stepping stone to the next, so do your very best to learn from each job and respect it while you’re doing it. Give back to something or someone who needs a helping hand. And when you feel like your river isn’t flowing in the right direction, I hope you will muster the courage to change course, sooner than later.
