Staying Motivated During Your Job Search

“How do you remain motivated while looking for a job?” Being downsized or terminated from a position can be demoralizing.

Below are two tips to keep you motivated during your job search.

  • CREATE A SCHEDULE AND STICK TO IT.  I suggest you think of your job search as full-time work and designate at least 5 hours a day to your “job.” Visit prospective employers’ websites, send out e-mails, follow up leads, network and update your social media profiles (LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter) during normal working hours.
  • FIND A HOBBY.  Searching for work can be time-consuming, frustrating, and not immediately rewarding. You can spend hours filling out online applications without receiving a response. You can make 25 calls a day without landing an interview.

Instead of letting your situation bring you down, spend some time doing something you love. Even better if it is work-related! Play golf or join a book club, the former is a great networking tool and the latter will improve your knowledge and critical thinking skills. Energizing your mind and body are two great ways to stay motivated during this time.
