Once that self doubt sets in, it becomes increasingly difficult to remain ambitious about seeking gainful employment. Psychotherapist Heather M. Hunter believes the counter-measure to that slide is to recognize the pattern and stay a step ahead. “If you know how the grind of a job hunt can affect you, you can prepare yourself mentally, which in the end, can get you hired,” she notes. Hunter holds a degree in psychology and specializes in wellbeing as a lifestyle strategist, where she counsels clients on all aspects of life, including career.
