1) Only applying to positions where you meet 100% of the qualifications and not going after other roles because you're missing 1-2 requirements.

3) Letting fear of failure and fear of uncertainty stop you from taking action in your career and job hunt.

4) Not following up with your network after meetings and conversations, and not circling back after they've given you advice or next steps.

5) Taking time to join networking events, meet other job seekers, but you are doing so with a bad attitude, negative vibes, or complaining about your situation.

6) Seeing yourself as someone a company should take a chance on, instead of recognizing the unique and specific value you bring to the positions you desire.

7) Struggling with common interview questions like "Tell me about yourself" and, "What's your greatest weakness?"

8) Assuming because you landed an interview you will also get the job and not adequately preparing to stand out in the interview.

Paid Tech Apprenticeships are available

9) Assuming a thank you note doesn't matter and not going the extra mile to send one after an interview. 

10) Being so desperate for a new position that you don't take the time to consider exactly what you'd like to do in your next role. 

11) Telling your network that you're looking for new opportunities without specifically letting them know what you'd like to do next. 

12) Not recognizing when you need expert guidance from a career coach to get faster results in your career and job search.
