President & CEO
When job hunting, it’s very easy to fall into a rut. The culprit may be a lack of a proper routine. Therefore, it is important to set yourself a daily schedule to improve your chances of landing a job! Structure your day to maximize your productivity.
First of all, wake up at an early hour each morning, as if you were going to the job. Get professionally dressed. Eat a balanced breakfast. Have an area of your home designated as an office. This area should be separated from distractions.
Furthermore, set aside a few hours to return emails and send out resumes. Also, take this time to reach out to any contacts that might be able to assist you in your employment search. This might be former colleagues or family members who are willing to submit your resume to their Human Resource Department. Perhaps it is a former college professor who has contacts at a corporation.
Next, attend interviews with companies. Ask questions and take notes. Explore all opportunities available at the companies. Then, go out and meet with recruiters and employment agencies in your area. These services might also offer you temporary assignments, and, as a result, you get to expand your job search and your network while earning money at the same time.
Shake hands and distribute your resume to as many people as possible. Don’t forget to follow up with the interviewers who gave you their time. Thank you letters are essential to send, and it is fine to send them via email.
In all, keep a schedule and organize your day when job hunting. This is the best way to keep your job search moving. The structure helps keep you motivated and fresh minded. Yes, the process may take a while, so don’t be discouraged. However, as long as you feel productive, you will be productive!
