Tips for Staying Motivated During Your Job Search – Part 2

Get Out From Behind Your Computer

Instead of the daily scanning of online job boards for job postings I want you to step away from your computer this week.  Online job boards are only one source of potential opportunities and they can become a false sense of hope. I recommend spending less than 20% of your time responding to job boards or website postings.  I recommend talking to other people and making cold calls to companies and asking for informational interviews from other professionals. It means developing new contacts and networks of professionals. It means taking someone to lunch or connecting with a professional association. Join a job club to increase your professional network and gain from the experience of others. Other job searchers can provide you with honest feedback and often leads.
