Resilience in Your Job Search:
Building on the Spark of You

Conversation with
  Hilarie Gaylin


 Job hunting is never fun. But wait, what if we were to reframe that perspective? What if we

hypothesized this instead: Job hunting is an adventure that frees us to learn more about ourselves and move more actively into our life’s purpose. How could this reframing serve us?

How could it make us more resilient about the process of job hunting?

In this interactive session, we will define resilience and identify some of the characteristics of resilient people. We will also explore some strategies for increasing our resilience and determine how to apply these strategies to our job search. What do trees and savoring a cup of coffee have to offer us? Is laughter really the best medicine? What else can we do to increase our optimism and resilience? Together, through conversation and exploration, we will strengthen our resilience repertoire.
