Searching for a job can be brutal. These five TEDx Talks will help you stay positive during the hunt.

1. Ashley Stahl: 3 Questions to Unlock Your Authentic Career

Surprisingly, not everyone hates looking for a job. Meet Ashley Stahl, a career coach who loves a good job hunt. Early in her career as a national security professional Stahl says she felt stuck. After some serious soul-searching and risk-taking, she created a career she truly loves and is helping others do the same. She urges people to ask themselves three questions about their career: What am I good at? What do other people think I’m good at? What’s holding me back? Answers to these, she says, will unlock a passionate career.

Ashley Stahl is doing a Live Facebook Q&A with Levo tomorrow! Join us at 1:00pm EST to ask her sage advice on all your career questions.

2. Zain Asher: Trust Your Struggle

“Success is never really in a straight line,” says CNN International anchor Zain Asher. Four years ago, Asher worked as a receptionist, and after a series of self-made breaks (she even filmed a fake news reel around Los Angeles to apply for news anchor jobs), Asher has made it to her dream job. Her story serves as proof that if you want something badly enough, hard work can get it for you.

3. Larry Smith: Why You Will Fail to Have a Great Career

Larry Smith, Economics Professor at University of Waterloo, delivers the ultimate reverse psychological TEDx Talk. He, in details, explains why you won’t have a great career. He says you’ll tell yourself you can’t be a great partner, a great friend, a great parent, and have a great career all in the same lifetime. So, why are you so accepting of trade-offs in life? And what happens when you decide you want it all? His talk will urge to not settle for anything less than everything.

4. Barbara Corcoran: Rethinking Failure

In this honest talk by entrepreneur and investor—you might know her as a shark on “Shark Tank”—Barbara Corcoran opens up about how she used some pretty major failures in her career to her advantage by shifting her perspective to the effort rather than the outcome. “The one thing I do so well is I fail well,” says Corcoran. The job hunt is full of what could be perceived as failures, and this talk will inspire you to change your outlook on them.

5. Tim Clark: Say Goodbye to Career Planning

Entrepreneur Tim Clark says in his TEDx Talk that the notion of career planning is silly and that many people’s careers are based on hypotheses (“I think I’d like this job.”) and tests (“Ok, turns out I don’t like this job.”). But, according to Clark, it doesn’t have to be this way. What you need is what Clark calls a “personal business plan” to serve as a roadmap to guide you through a happy career and help you find fulfilling jobs.

Great advice and knowledge given. I learned from this

Great TEDx talks!

Thanks a lot Jenny for sharing this article here. This is a very useful compilation of relevant TED talks. All the five points are good but i specifically like the one with Tim Clark. Forget the planning. Most of them just spends a lot of time planning their career. Few of these cases lead to anxiety problems and stressed mind. Loved that talk. best rated snoring mouthpiece

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this. Use PSN Code Generator
