Words from the Wise: 001 – Zig Ziglar
This is a series of posts that uses a quotation by a famous person from history to make a point about career management. Take a moment to reflect and see whether you can start using this wisdom as you start managing your career.
Zig Ziglar said:
“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.”
Proteus Career Management says:
“When it comes to the interview, you are the only person who will benefit from your ability as an interviewee.”
“Believe in yourself.”
Dr Mike Warren says:
Job seekers everywhere should heed the message behind Zig Ziglar’s thoughtful message. Your friend or your partner can’t be the interviewee in your stead, but if you have a mentor they can certainly help you to believe in yourself so that you are in top interviewee form when you need to be.
By the way, if you do not have a mentor it would undoubtedly be a good idea to engage one. Your mentor will not be able to get rid of all the challenges you may be facing, but they can certainly show you, perhaps from their own example, how best to face them.
