Between Jobs? Get Excited About the Job Search — 14 Comments

  1. What a great post! All things in life can be fun, even a job search! If you like to count things, count the number of contacts you have with hiring managers. Research shows that it takes – on average – 25 conversations before you get a job offer. And if you like competition, find a job search buddy and compare stats – you can motivate each other and stay out of the job search doldrums.

  2. Such a positive outlook! I always say, when God closes one door, He opens another. Great advice about have different versions of your resume. It shouldn’t be cookie cutter. Employers like that you took time to customize your application.

  3. Great information and suggestions to help stay upbeat and motivated in a stressful situation – definitely something that can be applied to life, in general! I agree with, Arelis! While I’m not actively seeking employment, one should never get too complacent and should keep an updated resume. It’s easier to do while you’re doing the duties and not when you’re stressed during an unexpected job search.

  4. I’m not currently seeking employment but I’ve just realized that I haven’t updated my resume in a bit. Thanks!

  5. I do this in other areas of my life like housework. I think it would definitely be a great way to push myself to get more freelance work! Thank you for the tip!

  6. Wow, you have taken it up a notch with theme music. I am going to have to up my game and add theme music!

  7. Great tips! I think this translates well for other major life changes: babies, searching for a new house, etc. Thanks!
