  1. 1. “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.” –Thomas Jefferson “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” – George Santayana “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” –Eleanor Roosevelt “People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.” – Andrew Carnegie “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” –Benjamin Franklin

  3. 3. Anyone in a job search knows it pretty much sucks. Not very eloquent, I know, but that seems to sum it up best. A job search that goes on too long, or yields little employer feedback in the form of interviews or feedback, can start to become demoralizing and depressing. You can begin to feel like you are an island. When you see everyone else going off to work, having a “normal” life, while you are at home, day after day, you can start to get a little nuts.
  4. 4. 1. Don’t keep doing the same thing 2. Meet with people often 3. Limit your time searching online job boards 4. Exercise 5. Get the right tools
  5. 5. Don’t keep doing the same thing If your job search is not delivering results, don’t keep doing the same thing. Change your strategy, seek new tactics and find help where you think you are coming up short. It could be in the form of a job coach, an interview critique or resume reviewer. It could even mean talking with recruiters and HR managers that you know to ask them why they think you are not getting results.
  6. 6. Meet with people often Isolation becomes one of the biggest enemies to the unemployed. Searching for work at home, by yourself can secretly start to wear you down and diminish your communication skills and confidence. Get out and work in a Starbucks once a week. Join an accountability group of job seekers – just make sure they are positive people. Join “Meet Up” groups related to your profession, interests or hobbies. This later approach just gets you out interacting with people. You may even find a connection that leads you to your next opportunity!
  7. 7. Limit your time searching online job boards Limit your time searching online job boards. Limit your time searching online job boards. Limit your time searching online job boards. Get the point? It’s an easy trap to fall into. You think you are productive finding job opportunities online and applying to them, but you’re dead wrong! VERY FEW people get a job from online job boards. You need to spend 80% of your time networking and less than 20% on job boards. Be disciplined about this point.
  8. 8. Exercise Your brain is going nuts. You’re stressed. The best cure is physical exercise. Get out of the house once a day and go to the gym or find a place to work out. Do it the same time every day to establish a routine. You would have a routine if you had a job, therefore, you should have a routine when you look for a job. I’m not a health nut. Just trust me; this tip is a must for every job seeker. You will feel better, look better and be more prepared when you do have an interview.
  9. 9. Get the right tools Most people use tools of one sort or the other for their jobs. The same should be true for job seekers. You need tools that will help you with the job search process. A critical tool for the job seeker in 2014 is a job search tracking system (JTS). Without it, you might as well add 10 weeks to your job search. A JTS is like a CRM for job seekers. Don’t know what CRM is? Google it. I’m not going to do all the work for youJ The best JTS out there is SnagPad and you can try it free here.
  10. 10. Hopefully, these five points will help make your job search experience more positive and shorter. Remember, you are a great worker and you can offer tremendous value to an employer. Use these tips to help you put your best foot forward in your job search. Best of luck!
