An excerpt from reCareered's 4/6/12 newsletter that discusses how to use failure to help your job search ...
Let’s face it, we’ve all failed at one point or another. How can you demonstrate your failure in a positive light to employers, so that it’s just as positive as your successes?
One of the best examples of failure comes from someone we only identify with success. That’s the reason this quote was so shocking but also so telling, about the man who spoke it.
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
– Michael Jordan
