Stop Comparing Yourself To Other Job Seekers
I know, it is unavoidable. Especially when you see someone you know post on the boards that they just started their first week on their new job, and you think, "Why can't I be that lucky?" Or you read another post about someone who landed their dream job after just a few weeks of searching, and you start to feel discouraged and frustrated and anxious, and you start wondering, “What’s wrong with me?” Remember that everyone is different and everyone's job search journey is different. One size does not fit all. As long as you are doing your best, and following standard job search guidelines, that is all you can do. Your time will come. Everyone has different skills, experience, and goals. And everyone is coming from a different situation. Some people may have a network of connections that can help them find a job. Others may have more time to dedicate to their job search. Some may have been willing to work onsite or relocate. Others may have been willing to start out in a temporary position instead of full-time.
So please don’t compare yourself to others. It's like comparing apples to oranges. Plus, it’s not good for you. Focus on your own journey. What are your goals? What are your strengths? What are you passionate about?
Once you have a good understanding of yourself, you can start to focus on finding a job that's a good fit. And that's when you'll start to see success.
Here are a few tips to help you stop comparing yourself to others:
Focus on your own goals.
Remember that everyone's journey is different.
Celebrate your own successes.

Why do you want to work from home?
There are many valid reasons for wanting to remotely - how you answer this question in an interview can be a deal breaker.
If someone wants to be home to care for aging parents or children, it may affect the hours they can keep or the distractions they face.
if someone talks about how they are more productive working from home, or they like the idea of working without geographical limitations, they are framing their answer in a way that talks about the professional advantages of remote work.
If someone talks about how they want to work in their pajamas or that they don’t like having a boss breathing down their neck, they’ve framed the answer in a more personal way. There’s nothing wrong with personal reasons for pursuing remote work. But answers like these could indicate that a candidate is more motivated by personal gain than professional growth.
