If you want to know how you are doing with your job search, you need to look at the data. That means you will need to track the data. Are you keeping track of how your time is being spent and in which activities?
Using a version of Orville Pierson's productivity chart (Download Productivity chart) will help you track your job search efforts. He has a website too!
Not only will the analytical types be able to assess the numbers themselves, but the spontaneous will be able to better hold themselves accountable.
I dare you to try to track your efforts for a week…see what happens!
