Historical Reminiscents EP 32: Confidence and Job Applications

Person standing on a rock face. Right side reads: "Episode 32: Confidence and Job Applications"

Job applications can be full of emotional labour, self-doubt, and stress.  How do you know if you are qualified for a job? Should you take the time to apply? In this episode I talk about cover letters, equivalent experience, and putting yourself out there. I also discuss the intersection of gender, job applications, and impostor syndrome.

I would love to hear job seeking advice from other folks, leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.

Mentioned in this episode:
-Katty Kay and Claire Shipman, “The Confidence Gap
-Iva Petkovic, “The complicated gender politics of impostor syndrome
-Andrea Eidinger, “We Regret To Inform You: The Emotional Labour of Job Applications.”
