Common Psychological Obstacles to Employment

How should students prepare psychologically before employment and eliminate psychological interference? Experts suggest that college students should focus on overcoming the following common psychological barriers when they are employed:

1. Blind and confident psychology

Some students think that they have various advantages in employment: excellent academic performance, good political conditions, bright school brand, high professional demand, and wide-ranging job hunting. Therefore, they are blindly confident and have a high appetite for career choices. Too high, underestimating one’s own deficiencies and difficulties, and frustrated in employment.

2. Inferiority complex and fearfulness

Some classmates have gone through four years of university smoothly, and they also have certain strengths and advantages. Facing fierce competition, they feel that they are not good at this, that is not as good as others. Inferiority complex makes them lack the courage to compete and lack confidence When I enter the job market, I feel frustrated, and I feel uneasy when I participate in a recruitment interview. Once you are frustrated in the middle, you will be less able to bear it psychologically, and you will feel that you really can’t do it. In the fierce employment competition, this psychological barrier is the enemy to success and must be overcome in earnest.



3. The mentality of eager for quick success

Some students pay too much attention to status and benefits when they are employed. They only want to enter big cities, large institutions, go to developed coastal areas, to earn more money and pay well, and even abandon their majors for temporary utilitarianism. I would rather not have a household registration than welfare and so on. This kind of psychology may give you some immediate benefits and satisfaction, but it is not a wise choice in the long-term development.

4. The mentality of suffering from gains and losses

Choosing a career is often a grasp of opportunities. If you miss an opportunity, you will miss your success. Constantly constantly, worrying about gains and losses, this mountain looks at the high mountain, which is also a psychological obstacle that causes many graduates to fall into the misunderstanding of employment.

5. The psychology of over-dependence

Dependence psychology is concretely manifested in two tendencies in job hunting: one is the herd psychology of relying on the majority. I lack independent insights. I don’t make a realistic choice based on my own actual situation. Instead, everyone agrees. Seeing others crowded into big cities and big institutions, I also follow the excitement; the other is the tendency to rely on policies and rely on others. Do not choose actively and compete actively, which is incompatible with the social reality of fierce competition.
