Whether you are looking for new opportunities or trying to break into the workforce, finding a job can be an incredibly stressful, and even daunting experience. With competition growing fiercer and there seemingly being only a limited amount of jobs available, it is no wonder that a job search can take weeks and months before something comes up.

Which is why we have decided to compile a list of inspirational quotes that will not only spur you on, they will put you in the mindset for success.
