Don’t Waste Time: 5 Keys to Smart Job Hunting
When you’re on a hunt for a job, it is important to manage your time wisely to make sure that time is not wasted. The more organized you are with your efforts, the faster your chances are of finding the right job and the right job finding you. On top of that the more time you spend looking for a job, the more frustrated you will become.
Use your time wisely by seeing if you have all these questions covered.
1. Do you have a schedule? When someone is available there’s too much temptation to be spontaneous. On the other hand if you are still hired, there’s a big tendency that you forget your efforts. Have a schedule and commit to it. Keep a calendar on your phone with notes on when you are calling which company to request for an interview.
2. Is everything you need organized already? On your computer, organize all your prospective employers and requirements in different documents. Have a folder with different variations of your resume and cover letters ready. Have your corporate clothes ready. Have a list of references that you can bring to your interviews.
5. Are you staying positive? No matter how hard the job hunt gets a negative thought is your worst enemy. Just keep moving forward, stay prepared, and keep your head up. Worrying will not do you any good.
Always remember, cliché as it may seem, there is great truth to the saying that good luck is when preparation meets opportunity.
So here it goes – Good Luck!
