Have you ever been without a job? I have heard that, aside from losing a child, being unemployed is one of toughest experiences to go through. If you have been fortunate enough to have not experienced this anguish, lets find another angle. Have you ever searched for love? I imagine this is an experience we have all gone through. While it can lead to the most rewarding of outcomes, the process itself is quite draining. So draining, in fact, that it severely affects the rest of our lives. At Funancials, what do we do with issues that severely affect our lives? We tackle the issue head on and provide time-tested tips that can translate to your specific situation.
How To Get A Job
There is an age-old adage that says “it’s easier to get a job if you already have one.” I find this thought to be fairly accurate because of these following reasons:
Interviews are full of explanations. What do you do at your current job? Why are you leaving your current job? Why do you feel your current skills will translate well into this new position? These are all common questions you’ll likely receive in an interview. These questions can be annoying to answer, but they’re extremely simple if you’ve done well where you’ve been. It’s a much more difficult conversation if you’re explaining why you were let go or what you’ve been doing for the past few months.
- Your Confidence
Have you ever seen somebody that’s desperate for money walk into a pawn shop? The desperation is so real you can touch it. This doesn’t work in the favor of the one needing the money. On the other hand, if you walk into a pawn shop with an antique that you’re looking to know the value of – it’s a different story. We are naturally more confident in situations where we want something rather than need it. “I’m content where I am but am looking for opportunities to advance” is a more comfortable conversation than “my savings is dwindling and I need to put food on the table.”
- Their Confidence
Look at the way home-buyers approach a house that has been on the market for a while. It may be everything they are looking for but, deep down, there is a hesitation. If this house is so great then why didn’t anyone else want it? This same thought goes through the minds of potential employers. If somebody else thought you were great then I probably will too.
When you have a job, you are constantly surrounded by people who 1. do what you do and 2. can vouch for what you do. A lot of opportunity comes from a co-worker joining another organization who is looking to bring over people with similar experience. If you don’t have these co-workers, you don’t have this immediate connection.
If you’re jobless, you’re probably reading the above and thinking: “Oh yea! It’s that easy!” “All I have to do to get a job is….get a job!?!?” “That makes perfect sense!” I know it sounds cliche and oversimplified. The way I read it is to always stay active. Always communicate with other professionals in your field. Always communicate with friends. Always be looking for opportunities to shift and advance. Always keep a book of contacts who can vouch for the value you bring to the table. Lastly, always show you’re trying.
How To Get A Girlfriend
Now that the easy parts out of the way…let’s figure out how to get a girlfriend. I wanted this to be a combined post because the approaches you’ll want to take are similar. Finding a job and finding love are going to involve the same psychology.
If you paid attention to the top portion of this post, you should begin to see the similarities. All you have to do to get a girlfriend…is get a girlfriend!
It’s Easier To Get A Girlfriend When You Already Have A Girlfriend
I don’t want you to misconstrue this advice. If misunderstood, I could be in the dog house. So read my advice carefully. It’s easier to get a girlfriend if you already have a girlfriend. I’m not recommending you search for a NEW girlfriend while you are still with the OLD girlfriend. There should be no Venn-Diagram dating.
What I am saying is treat your current girlfriend like an angel. Even if you’re unsure about your future with her, treat her like she is a gift from God. After all, she is. All women are.
Always keep this mindset. The way you treat your current girlfriend will be visible to everybody – including potential prospects (or should we call them “employers”?). Think back on how to get a job…your new prospects will have much more confidence in you if they know you have already been tested. You will have more confidence in yourself because you’ll have already dealt with similar situations.
A Guarantee: During this girlfriend acquisition process, trust me, there will be lots of explanations.
Readers: Do you agree with my advice? Do you see the similarities? Do you promise not to share this piece with your girlfriend?
