  • Approach finding a job as if it were a full-time job, because it is.
    • Follow a regular schedule as you would in a traditional job.
    • Treat the job search seriously, as your future depends on it.
    • Avoid treating your job hunt like a part-time hobby to prevent prolonging the process.
    • Dedicate your day to tasks that will lead you closer to securing a job.
  • Approach finding a job as if it were a project.
    • Set personal goals, make plans, and monitor your progress.
    • Apply all the tools and skills from your previous job to the task of finding a new one.
  • Be your own boss in the job-hunting process.
    • Set expectations and provide direction for yourself.
    • Evaluate your own performance weekly.
    • Write two types of reports: an evaluation of your past week’s accomplishments, and a plan for the coming week.
    • In your first report, evaluate what you’ve done so far and compare the results with your expectations.
    • In your second report, create a realistic plan for the next week, including achievable goals like the number of people you will call, networking meetings you’ll attend, and research to be conducted.
  • Regularly compare your results with your goals.
    • If you fall short of your goals, analyze why this happened and plan actions to correct the discrepancy.
    • Understanding why you missed your goals can provide insight into what you need to do differently in the future.
    • Adjust your goals if needed and find ways to make achieving them easier.
  • Remember that finding a job is a full-time job in itself. Work through it with a plan and the support of a good boss (yourself).
