Optimists Are Better at Finding New Jobs

Optimism is also helpful during the interview process, making candidates appear more likeable and capable. When a hiring manager asks about a recent challenge and how you solved it, the way you frame your response is telling for future performance.

The most hopeful aspect coming out of optimism research is that our mindset is malleable — just like a muscle at the gym, we can work on it to strengthen it. Our mindset is not merely a result of genes and upbringing. By refocusing attention on the positive, meaningful parts of life and our personal strengths, we can scientifically retrain the brain to default to that way of thinking.
