Building Confidence and Resilience
Confidence and resilience are important tools for young people to have in today's competitive job market.
Job hunting can be a daunting task, especially for young people that may not have much experience under their belt. I was inspired to share Amy Cuddy's TED talk: "Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are" in response to that feeling of being at a disadvantage. In the talk, she explains how 2 minutes of a simple posture change can have a positive effect on how you view yourself. I think that confidence and optimistic resilience are important tools for young people to have in today's competitive job market in order to stay persistent and not be discouraged. Simple exercises like this are easily accessible and may help young job hunters build these tools.
