ACCORDING TO BERKELEY COLLEGE VP, CAREER SERVICES, IN HBCU CAREERS MAGAZINE

In the article, Soricelli further explains what it means to be fearless in the job search realm. “‘Fearless’ job searching is a process which involves introspection, curiosity, research, goal setting and action,” says Soricelli.

Soricelli’s piece was inspired by the challenges recent grads face in an uncertain job market, highlighting the ongoing roadblock that the pandemic poses for employment. A recent survey published by Monster.com of 1,000 college graduates in the Class of 2020 found that nearly half were still looking for work about a year after earning their degrees. “Fearlessness” in the job search is a strategy for building resilience during a variable time in the market.
Despite the evident complexities, Soricelli indicates that there is hope for candidates. She encourages proactivity and optimism. “The job search is not easy and each day must be met with enthusiasm and hope,” said Soricelli. “Each day can be a positive one in the ‘fearless’ job search.”
