3 Tips for Persevering During a Job Search:
2) Don’t let your Job Search define you: Most of us put our heart & soul into finding a new job opportunity, as we should. That said, do everything you can to maintain a life outside of your search. This could include going to the gym, extracurricular activities, hobbies, cooking or anything else that you know you do well. Don’t go into a job search with an empty bucket (aka How Full Is Your Bucket? Positive Strategies for Work and Life).
3) Get help sooner rather than later: Some people spend 6 months trying to go it alone in their job search without ever asking for help. By then they feel pretty beat up with rejection letters and a lack of offers. If you’re feeling beat up by your job search it might be time to ask an expert for help. Someone who is on your side teaching, coaching and encouraging you during your job search can be an invaluable resource.
