Job Search – Looking for a job

So, you are looking for a job and dreading it?

I hear you loud and clear! The process of looking for a job is no picnic in the park — the competition is fierce, the job market is sluggish and the rejection is painful! In short, the entire process is scary and exhausting.

However, you are still looking for a job and you don’t know where to begin!

Looking for a job can be overwhelming and it will take you on an emotional roller-coaster right. But you must never lose sight of the fact that it is doable! With the right attitude and some diligent preparation you can do it!

• The first and more important aspect of the entire process of looking for a job is to set yourself into the proper gear:

– If you are currently out of a job, looking for a job is a full-time job in and of itself. Your job while looking for a job is to view it as such. Therefore, you must dress the part, keep to an 8-hour schedule and perform the task with the precision and accuracy you are capable of.
– If you are currently employed but looking for a new job, the process is your second job. You must view it as a second job and you must dress the part, keep to the appropriate schedule and perform the task as best as you possibly can.

• You must then approach your job of looking for a job with the proper tools; tools which are well maintained:

– Have a CV in hand that is professional looking, that addresses your current career stance and highlights your best qualities. In other words, have a CV that makes you shine like the star that you are.
– Have a CV that is unique and portray you as special enough to set you head and shoulders above the rest of the crowd.
– Have a CV that speaks of your high qualities and your amazing experience.

• When faced with the unpleasantness of a rejection; grit your teeth, square your shoulders and put on a winning smile — those who rejected you are the losers not you!

– Do not let their failure to recognise your potential clip your wings and slow your momentum.
– Do not let their lack of foresight to appreciate your can-do-attitude drag you into a pit of demoralisation.
– Do not let their inaptitude to realise your stardom extinguish your brilliant light.

Keep going, persevere and get your CV into the hands of as many potential employers as you can. You will, in the end, find the job you are looking for, but until then keep your chin up and stay motivated.
