5 ways to stay motivated in a frustating job hunt

  1. 1. When your motivation is low, general job-searching tasks like “network” and “redo resume” can be overwhelming. A great way to instantly make your search seem more manageable?
  2. 2. When you’re job searching, reading description after description requiring “five to seven years of experience” in a certain field, it’s hard to remember the truth about career paths: They’re rarely linear. In fact, most successful people made loops, jumps, and a few skids to get to where they are today.
  3. 3. Your biggest fans can also be your most helpful critics—if you ask them to be. That supportive former co-worker, professor who believed in you, and friend who just gets you all know your full potential and how you could improve. So, if you’re feeling like you’re trying everything but still getting nowhere, try asking them for some constructive criticism.
  4. 4. “Where do you see yourself in 10 years?” is a question we all try to avoid. But right now, when you’re in a slump, is exactly the right time to answer it. Take some time to make a list of all of your dreams, big and small. Actually putting them on paper will force you to think about what you want to achieve.
  5. 5. At one point, I was doing something job-search related every day, from going on informational interviews to searching Indeed for every type of entry-level communications position imaginable. I was burned out. And I found myself losing sight of my main objectives and looking for jobs just to find a job, even if they were not right for me.
  6. 6. The AMCAT is India’s first employability assessment test that help fresh graduates to get their first job quickly and efficiently.
