Proactive vs. Desperate Job Search Behavior: 5 Ways to Tell the Difference


Kamna | Posted on 2018-01-11

In a competitive job market, certain behaviors and qualities tend to stand out and leave a strong impression. These include social boldness, extroversion, a willingness to take risks and a willingness to show extreme enthusiasm and dedication to an employer. But unfortunately, not all of us actually possess these traits, and when candidates try to fake enthusiasm or determination they don’t actually feel, the results can be awkward – like sending the manager a cake frosted with the words, “Please hire me.” Sometimes these gestures work beautifully, and sometimes they fall flat. If you’re tempted to go over the top or push the boundaries of normal social behavior in an attempt to gain a hiring manger’s attention, here’s a quick guide to help you recognize the difference between proactive boldness and cringe-inducing desperation. Ask yourself these questions before you proceed.
