Often, during long job searches, we tend to find ourselves quitting and getting frustrated with not receiving any calls from employers. The job search can be difficult now-a-days due to new Human Resources processes and other drivers that make getting the job challenging. In any case, the job seeker must stay vigilant and remember the end goal. Once reminded of the end goal, empower yourself!! Use the motivation from remembering your end goal to empower yourself and give you the drive to “Keep Trucking”.
- Try new job search techniques. Utilize Google.com, Monster.com, Careerbuilder.com, Indeed.com, and other job search engines such as Federal, State and Local websites.
- Take breaks during your job search. Many applications have a save button. Here, you can save your application as a draft and continue at a later time. During your break, do something that puts your mind at ease.
- Remind yourself where you want to be at the end of this task of searching for jobs. Envision yourself working in your specific environment and receiving the salary and benefits desired! This is usually a common thought that can make an individual happy.
