Future Hirers: Stay Positive and Get 2016 Off To A Flying Start

Sometimes it’s hard to stay positive at work, especially at this time of year. It’s easy to get bogged down with the daily grind of work but it’s important to stay positive. We’ve put together a few tips for staying positive at work…

  1. Arrive Early – Arrive early and focus on the tasks required today
  2. Emails – Avoid checking emails first thing. Focus on tasks in hand and periodically check emails through the day
  3. Time Usage – Are you making the most of your time? Focus efforts on what matters most
  4. Planning – Schedule your day and set out achievable objectives
  5. Break Times – Plan breaks into your day to allow recovery and re-focus on your tasks
  6. Health & Well Being – Exercise is proven to reduce stress and the resulting feel good factor can boost your productivity while leaving you in a healthy mind-set
  7. Pace Yourself – Rushing tasks will create more errors that inevitably you will have to re-do
  8. Support – Share your achievements with others and support the results of colleagues
  9. Collaboration – Never be afraid to ask for help. Collaborate with others to achieve mutual goals
  10. Boring Jobs – Bite the bullet and face mind numbing tasks head on
  11. Be Positive – Infuse positive emotions into your work and colleagues and enjoy the contagious nature
  12. Compassion – Remain compassionate to negative colleagues. People are usually negative for a reason
  13. Office Politics – Don’t get bogged down in office politics. Focus on what is needed to move forward
  14. Criticisms – Understand any criticism aimed at you and use the feedback to improve your work
  15. Adapt – Business changes to survive. Make sure you are open and adaptable rather than resisting change

And for those of you that are still looking for that great opportunity, here are a few tips to help you stay positive during your job search.

  1. Start or join a job club. Your local public library, college and university centres normally offer this service
  2. Remember you are not alone! Share what you’re going through with the people you love and trust
  3. Maintain balance in your life. Make time for fun, rest and relaxation, don’t let your situation consume you
  4. Keep a regular daily routine. It’s easy to lose motivation when you no longer have an employer to report to, set yourself a daily ‘start’ and ‘end’ time for your job search and keep to a routine
  5. Work Experience. Speak to your local Job Centre Plus office about the benefits of Work Experience
  6. Volunteer. Volunteering helps you maintain a sense of value and purpose
  7. Focus on the things you control. Don’t waste your energy on worrying about those things you can’t control, turn your attention to the things you can control like writing a great CV and cover letter and brushing up on your interview skills.
