Staying Motivated

Though the going gets tough and the tough gets going, I am learning that you have to stay motivated in the world of public relations.  If you are not motivated to get the job that you are applying for, someone else will be.

Staying focused on your career goals may be hard, especially if you keep getting turned down, but staying connected to the right people can be a great help to this.  For example, my family members are always pushing me forward and telling me to get back on the horse.  I also have other undergraduate students who aer going through the same situations as me.  Some of my friends are better off, some of my friends ar worse off, but we help each other out and talk to each other about our frustrations.

Finally, motivate yourself.  Being a self-motivated person will help you in the long run.  You will think more positively, apply for more opportunities, and you won’t give up so easily.  Also, you will need to be self-motivated in your future profession as a public relations professional anyway, so if you’re serious about your career, then it won’t be so hard to find things to motivate yourself.  Just keep your goals and your focus in mind, be a go-getter, know your stuff, and you will succeed.
