Monday Motivator for Your Job Search – Run Your Day

Either you run the day
or the day runs you.

~ Jim Rohn

 

Have you ever noticed that when you start your day with a plan, a goal, or a schedule, you get more done than on days you don’t?  In a job search, it’s all too easy to get distracted by home things, spend too much time surfing the web for job listings, or even just making “just one more” tweak to your resume before you send it out.

Take control of your time while you’re in your job hunt.  Set measurable goals for yourself:

It’s important to send out the best resume possible, but at some point you have to take a breath and send it.  Make a plan for concrete, measurable activities that will move you forward in your search.

Don’t spend 8 hours a day on job search activity. Instead, spend 4-6 hours on it and then take a break.  Take care of yourself.  Get a workout. Visit friends. Read a great book. Volunteer. Do something fun. Plan these things into your day.  There’s a lot of rejection built into any job search, and these things will keep your spirits up, help you feel better, and boost your confidence.

Make a plan for every day this week. Take control of your time, and you’ll be more productive.
