Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Preparing for an interview is a nerve-wracking, sweat-inducing, seemingly never-ending experience—but it can be made easier with some motivational quotes to pump you up before your job interview.

1. “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”— Winston Churchill

2.  “There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.”—Ray Goforth

3. “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” –Alexander Graham Bell

4. “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” –Robert F. Kennedy

5. “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race.” –Calvin Coolidge

8. “The future depends on what you do today.”—Mahatma Gandhi

9. “I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time.”—Anna Freudt

10. “The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper
tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the
procedure, the process is its own reward.”—Amelia Earhart
