When given advice or constructive criticism, it is best to take heed and let the information sit and marinate before responding. Having an optimistic and proactive approach rather than a reactive comeback or excuse affords one with an attitude that others are more likely to accept and portrays a positive image of a person who people are more willing to assist.
Seeking employment in a field that requires one to have experience and not being able to land that job can be very discouraging and frustrating, therefore when working alongside your Career Advisor, it is wise to be aware of your approach. Taking the high road with all circumstances and most criticism from supervisors or advisors is an important decision that is most positive, diplomatic and ethical. It’s a course of action that prevents the burning of any bridges and it will be yet another step in the right direction.
