JOB SEARCH TIP: Don’t let the trap of “New Year’s resolutions” derail your job search.

1 Jan

As you probably know, we don’t do a very good job of following up on our New Year’s resolutions.

I’m bad at them too.

When it comes to your job search, it may be easy to fall into some of the traps that cause us to lose momentum in other resolutions.

Rather than resolve “to have a job by the end of the month”, think about specific goals you can achieve each day that will help you get toward that goal:

  • How many job postings will you respond to?
  • How many networking meetings will you have?
  • How many hours will you spending conducting research on prospective employers and industries you may be considering?

Set specific goals around activities such as those noted above. You can’t control when you will receive a job offer, but you can control the activities that will increase you chances of getting one.

Let’s together make this New Year better in lots of ways, including conducting a job search that increases your chances of success.

There are free training videos on the web site of my faith community. Please pass along:
