You can do it! Make this week an all-out sprint. Give it all you’ve got! Don’t hold back. If you’ve been at job search for awhile, I know how hard it is to hear these words. You feel defeated sometimes, demotivated, discouraged, down and out, dumped on, depressed and more. I really know this. But you CAN’T let these feelings get in your way.
Today is Day 1
Approach today like it is the first day of your search (but the good thing is you have leads and opportunities to follow up on!) Chances are there are conversations you’ve let slip by, follow up calls that you just don’t want to make, etc.
Make your list right now. List all the awful things you don’t want to follow up on. (Are you listing them yet?)
Block Out Your Time
Today’s work day will be 7 hours! SEVEN. Lock yourself in a room today, because you’re digging in! Take those items you’ve listed and plug them into the hours below.
12:00-1:00 LUNCH BREAK
Oh, you say you don’t have enough action items listed to fill all the slots? Here, let me help you:
- Invite 5 people to join your LinkedIn network
- Find 5 new companies to target in your search
- Apply for one job today (in less than one hour!)
Would you like additional ideas for productive ways to spend your 7 hours today?
Or you could ask yourself Why Isn’t My Job Search Working?
When 5 o’clock rolls around today, reward yourself!
Will you let me know what items you’ll be checking off your list today? We’d all love to hold you accountable! And cheer you on!
