Dear Friends:

I received a few different messages last week from job seekers who were in the job search doldrums and  feeling beat down by the job seeking process. 

One told me, "It's 11:00 a.m. and I'm still in my pajamas.  I'm having a hard time finding any energy to send out another resume." Another said, "I'm stuck!  I'm usually a positive, energetic person, but today, I'm just depressed.  I just can't take another rejection!"

I know there are a lot of other job seekers out there who, from time to time, struggle to find the motivation to even get out of bed or have days where worry and anxiety seemingly overwhelms them. Sometimes it lasts for one day, other times it can last for several days.  While it's hard not to take your job search incredibly personal, job seekers should know that frustrations and anxiety are common; the goal is develop strategies so that you can continue a sense of constant and positive forward motion in your job search.

There are a couple of things I would recommend you consider that can help you get out of the job seeking mud.

1.) If you are full of anxiety and becoming depressed about your job search, then take a couple days off.  Don't jump onto any online job boards, don't make any phone calls and don't send out any resumes.  Instead, use this time to just clear your head and reboot.  Everyone has individual motivation strategies that they've had to use in their life to overcome a problem or a challenge.  Maybe it's as simple as going on a long hike or maybe it's hanging out with friends or family that can give you positive reinforcement. Start thinking about the things in your life that have helped you get out of a funk and also start thinking about the things that have worked in your job search to date to help refocus your job-seeking plan.

2.) If you are in the thick of your job search and you don't feel like spending the whole day doing it, then at least commit to doing at least ONE thing that will provide continued forward motion in your search for employment. Maybe it's making one phone call, sending out one resume or simply spending an hour on a job board writing down job leads that you can come back to later.

3.) Lastly, it's easy to get to a point where we can get overwhelmed with negative thoughts about our job search.  Let's face it, there is an unnatural amount of rejection tied to a job search. Maybe you are not getting the responses you hoped for or maybe you've been to an interview but didn't get the job offer.  Most of the time we are never told why were rejected and are left guessing. In these cases, we can easily overwhelm ourselves with negative assumptions about failure.  I call this 'stinking thinking.'  Don't let stinking thinking overtake the focus of the positive things that make you a valuable candidate; your skills, your education, your experiences, your expertise, your accomplishments, etc. You always need to remain focused on the value you can bring to a future employer.

We all have things that are valuable to employers.  The most successful job seekers I've met have one common thread:  they are confident and focused on their core skills and how those skills translate to the jobs they are applying and they never waver from all the things that make them a valuable addition to an organization.

Are you a job seeker who has struggled from time to time during your search?  What are things you do to get out of the job seeking quicksand?  Email me at ahudson@ahjobslist.com and I'll share these next week.

ODYESSEO by Cavalia Opens September 17 in Denver!

Win Two Tix to Opening Night on AH Jobs List!

“If Walt Disney were still alive, he might create a show as magical as Cavalia's new Odysseo. But it wouldn't be better than the wonderful world mastermind Normand Latourelle has created under his Big White Top."
-- The Miami Herald

For all you traveling down I-25 wondering what those big circus-like, DIA-looking tents are, you are in for a big treat!

Odysseo by Cavalia will make its premiere under the white big top at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Wednesday, September 17, 2014. Tickets for Odysseo are now on sale online at www.cavalia.net or by calling 1-866-999-8111.

And if you send an email to ahudson@ahjobslist.com, you'll be put into a drawing for two tickets to opening night, September 17!

The internationally acclaimed Cavalia pushes the limits of live entertainment once again with its second production: a 30-million dollar extravaganza that is wowing critics and audiences alike across North America.

Cavalia marries the equestrian arts, stage arts and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. A veritable revolution in live performance, Odysseo features 64 horses and 45 artists in a larger-than-life theatrical production that sends hearts racing. This breathtaking ode to horse and man, imagined by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil, is an absolute feast for the eyes that succeeds in delivering the spectacular with soul. Odysseo comprises a list of superlatives: the world’s largest touring big top, the biggest stage, the most beautiful visual effects, and the greatest number of horses at liberty.

To give life to this extraordinary equestrian adventure, Cavalia created a 17,500 square feet stage, in the middle of which rise two hills each three storeys tall. Some 10,000 tons of rock, earth and sand are trucked in and then sculpted to create the vast space of freedom where humans and horses come to play in complicity. Above the stage hangs an imposing technical grid capable of supporting 80 tons of equipment including, a full-sized merry-go-round, far beyond anything attempted to date on any touring show and comparable to the best-equipped theaters of Las Vegas, London or New York.

CAVALIA’S ODYSSEO WHITE BIG TOP
Standing 125 feet tall, the White Big Top is a traffic-stopping addition to the skyline of each city Odysseo performs. When visitors enter, they are immediately transported into a lavish and intimate environment reminiscent of any permanent theatre.
 
Following the instant success of the first Cavalia show in 2003, Latourelle began to dream of how to break through the limitations of a big top tent. The biggest challenge was to open up the performance area. Latourelle knew that such unprecedented flexibility would allow him to showcase more horses and acrobats to create mind-boggling scenes. This involved removing supporting masts from the stage, a common staging issue in tent shows. A specially-designed big top was created in Europe, where the weight of the structure shifted from masts to three arches above the tent. The Italian firm Canobbio, in collaboration with Artistic Director Normand Latourelle, designed the tent and supervised construction. Asteo of France and Genivar of Canada supervised engineering operations. The arches that support the massive structure were built by Show Canada.

Nonprofit of the Week



The Colorado Music Festival & Center for Musical Arts is one of the classical music industry's most dynamic, cutting-edge organizations. Combining a world-class summer music festival and a comprehensive community music school under one organizational umbrella, CMF & CMA enriches the lives of tens of thousands of individuals annually through access to the best of the world's music through performance and education.
 
Founded in 1977 by renowned Viennese conductor and violinist, Giora Bernstein, the Colorado Music Festival is one of the foremost summer music festivals in the world. Drawing musicians from many of North America's finest symphony orchestras, including the Minnesota, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, Oregon, Charlotte, and Phoenix symphonies, the Festival annually presents nearly thirty orchestral, chamber music, and educational performances in and around Boulder during its six week summer season. From 2003 — 2013, CMF was led by Music Director Laureate Michael Christie. Christie is credited with elevating the quality of the orchestra and galvanizing audiences through performances of the highest level. Following Christie's departure in 2013, an international search was launched to find the Festival's next artistic leader. The 2014 season showcased three finalists, and in a matter of weeks, CMF & CMA will announce its next Music Director.

With humble beginnings in 1995 in the town of Lafayette, the Center for Musical Arts has blossomed into one of the region's leading centers for music education. In 2009, the Center merged with the Colorado Music Festival, and currently serves more than 550 students of all ages and 7,000 concert goers and visitors each year. The Center's comprehensive portfolio of programs includes a broad spectrum of music education opportunities and performances for citizens throughout Boulder Country and beyond.

The Colorado Music Festival and Center for Musical Arts is a member of the League of American Orchestras and the National Guild for Community Arts Education.
