It Can’t Rain Forever...

As I write this closer, it's pouring rain outside.

Been raining all day.

Job Hunts are like the rainy, gloomy days of life.

Sometimes they really suck.

They can be filled with scary loud thunder, lightning strikes, or even a tornado.

You might be in one of these storms right now.

It's awful, especially if it's a really bad storm.

One of the pieces of inspiration I drew from my last job hunt was a song by music group Daughtry called "Backbone"

When you're hurting deep down

When you're feelin' like you're never gonna dig your way out

Never gonna dig your way out

Keep pushing up the river

Keep mining for the silver

'Til you strike gold

Gotta whether the storm

'Cause it can't rain forever, no

I'm telling you

We all fall on hard times, you know

Each day is a hard climb, you know

Some days your body has to carry on

So you gotta show a little backbone...

It can't rain forever.

Keep pushing on your job hunt.

I believe in you, and I know you have the Backbone to get through this.

The best part is you don't have to do it alone.
