Job hunting lessons from movie “The Pursuit of Happyness”!

By : Mehak Hameed

Real life stories are full of lessons. One such story is presented in the movie, “The Pursuit of Happyness”.  It’s the story of a small family including Chris, his wife, son and their troublesome life.

As it’s a well established fact that one always needs to get out of his comfort zone to demonstrate a big change, so did Chris in his early life as he forcefully pushed himself to take away his family from poverty to prosperity. In the race of his troublesome life, Chris’s wife failed to support him and left him along with his son. However, Chris faced a lot of tearful life events to fulfill his dreams as he wanted to become a stockbroker.

An entrepreneur always faces unexpected difficult situations likewise Chris kept facing one trial after the other till he reached the state of demoralization. Simultaneously putting his efforts he had been enhancing his personality with new life lessons like self management and practical intelligence. His core power that helped him was his strong inner commitment, he was alone and poor on financial terms but quite enthusiastic to figure out his desires.

He believed that his telephone calls will generate meetings and meetings will generate interested prospects and prospects will result into sales closings and closings will generate money. Ashraf Chaudhry in his book, The Craft of Selling “YOURSELF” translates this mantra for job hunters!

“X calls=X meetings=X interested prospects = X closing=X money” that means “X friends & X Big Bang Letters = X interviews=X Job Offers”

In simple words, the bigger your network is the more interview calls you’ll get! Modify your job search with this mantra, take risks and prepare to succeed!

Moreover, it is very well said that “You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life”. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do it, just go after your dreams.
