If You Don’t Care, You’re in Serious Trouble


Robby

We’ve all seen it. As a customer, we walk into a store and the person behind the counter absolutely has no interest in helping us or really doing anything at all. They are watching the clock until their shift ends. They avoid eye contact. They have their phone out to text with friends. They are, in a word, useless.

When I talk to jobseekers in central Indiana, I hear the words “I don’t care” with surprising frequency. I see the words “I don’t care” in the facial expressions of individuals. Here are some questions I’ll ask and typical responses:

  • What industry do you want to work in?I don’t really care, I just want to find something where I enjoy my job.
  • Do you need to maintain your salary level? – It would be great, sure, but I don’t really care, as much as I want to make sure that it’s a better job than my current one.
  • Would you be okay working for a competitor? – II don’t really care. If it’s a better company and a better job, sure.

The problem with caring is two fold. First, all of us are faking it some point. We feel that we’re required to be exciting about some things which really aren’t that exciting. (If you have kids and they show you something they made, you may know what I mean.)

And second, even though everybody doesn’t care about some things, admitting you don’t care can be a death sentence. After all, we all have bad days, but when we go into a restaurant and the server rolls her eyes, that reflects poorly on the establishment.

So what can you do? It’s simple to say, but hard to do. Care as much as possible about what matters and when others can see. And at the same time, if you don’t care, admit it as nicely as you can. Try “this isn’t an area where I have a lot of passion” or “This is something I know is important, but doesn’t personally appeal to me.”

Be honest, but be committed. The more you care, the more others will see that you care and want to help.
