Looking for a job can be a lonely gig.
I know how it feels. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
Your friends and business associates all have jobs. Their life is good, but unless you have networking meetings or interviews scheduled, you work alone, usually from a makeshift home office. That makes it more painful. You are on the outside of your professional life, looking back in. OK, but let’s talk about how we can fast-track a solution for you.
Here are my three job search essentials:
- Be disciplined – Your old job required discipline and provided you with a routine. OK, but you have a full-time job – looking for a new job. That requires the same amount of discipline and consistency as any other job, perhaps even more.
- Be aggressive. Most of the great jobs are not listed on the internet. So, you must be assertive in expanding your professional network. Networking will get you to the table.
- Practice your interviewing skills. That is how you will win the job, and this is where most people stumble.
