Can you remember the 4 basic tasks of your job search plan?

Tired of feeling frantic and panicked during your job search?  Ready to start spending your time and energy on strategies that work?  Here’s how to stay motivated throughout the whole process.

Building a job search schedule is one of the most effective ways to structure in the opportunities that will lead you to your next job.  The 4 basic parts of your planning are:

  1. Daily Tasks
  2. Exercise
  3. Socializing
  4. Networking

Set small goals that relate to each of these…simple things like:

  • I will spend 30 minutes checking out internet job boards everyday
  • Every week I will connect with 2 new contacts
  • I will join a job search group on Facebook
  • Using LinkedIn, I’ll find someone who has my dream job and reach out to learn how they got there
  • I get to take one day off every week to do things that refresh me

As you take care of the daily tasks, weekly tasks, and include “staying hopeful” tasks in your job search plan, you’ll be able to keep your motivation up and enlist the help of others while you find the work that is waiting for you.
