It’s time to review your job search activities in the past three months. You can learn from your failures as much as your successes. Consider the following questions:
1. How many hours do you spend on your job search each day?
2. Have you set minimum daily standards for your search?
3. Do you accomplish these standards each day?
4. How many hiring authorities have you talked to?
5. How many interviews have you scheduled?
The answers to these questions can provide you with insight on whether your search is moving forward, in neutral or going in reverse. Today is the best time to put your job search in high gear. Set and attain daily standards, re-contact everyone in your personal and professional network, call all past employers and co-workers, attend job fairs and networking events and take advantage of the hiring that will be done in the last quarter of this year!
It is important to review the articles in our Career Portal Library as well as the information contained in the sixteen step process for finding a job. Identify where you are in the job search process and then read the materials that will help you advance your search. Try to spend one hour that you may be currently spending watching TV, listening to the radio or reading the newspaper reading the many articles contained in our Career Portal!
