For example if you don’t get the first job you apply for. This isn’t a huge issue it, unfortunately happens, and you can’t control that. However, you can control if you keep trying. Take the old age saying to heart. If you don’t succeed, try, try again.  However this does not mean that you should apply for every job you see.

Only apply for those that you are qualified for, sending out to ones you don’t want will only get you interviews you don’t really want to go to. Therefore the most important thing is definitely finding all those jobs you really want.

This means that you can’t just look for jobs in one place. Use all the resources at your disposal; this includes newspapers, bulletin boards and the internet.  Don’t ever be blinded by your past presumptions or experiences; having an open mind is always important when looking for a job.  Deciding that you won’t take a job from someone just because you don’t trust the type of person they are; is short-sighted and unreasonable.
