Inspiration is an integral part of the job search. Inspirational quotes can be used to make you distinctive to HR and hiring managers; they can set the tone of a cover letter or frame a response to an interview question. They also are helpful in providing insight for how to approach the different aspects of job hunting. As well, inspiration is a great way to kick-start the day, or it could be needed just to keep us going if we’ve hit a low point.
On Twitter, I have started a list of people who make inspirational tweets. Here is a sampling from each person on that list:

Also, if you have suggestions for other people to add to this list, I’d love to have them!
