The reason for taking time to plan your job search strategy is so that you get clear on where you are going!
If you are struggling to find a job, have you ever felt that there’s just not enough time in the day? Most often, when we run out of time for projects or pursuits, the reason is that we’ve spent a lot of time lost in ambiguity.
When you’re supremely clear about where you’re going and what you want to do, there’s no time lost. Your actions are clear & precise, and you can make an AMAZING amount of progress in just a short period of time.
Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to eliminate the time-management nightmare when you are trying to find a job:
1. Plan your work.
Take a few moments to determine where you’re going and how you plan to get there. Having a clear plan for your job search strategy means that every small step you take, takes you one step closer to getting that job. You don’t have to know all the steps or details; just write down the basic outline as you can see it.
2. Gather your resources.
Get your tools in order. Think about what you need for each step of your job search strategy, a strong CV, market research, people in your network who can help you, social media, interview skills, etc .
3. Work your plan.
Give yourself a deadline, then follow your outline step-by-step. If you get lost or distracted, come back to your outline and see what’s next.
Before long you will be going for an interview and hopefully being offered the job you want.
