4 Tips to Overcome the Job Searching Blues

24th February 2012

Finishing school and looking for a job can be an exciting challenge, but it is not always met successfully right from the beginning. Many people spend months looking for a job before eventually finding a position that allows career progression and is rewarding let alone what they actually want to do. Young graduates find the months when they are not hired anxious and frightening so we have listed a few helpful tips for those of you who find yourself in this situation.

First of all, do not take a job that has nothing to do with your career goals or aspirations. It is necessary to be realistic about the types of jobs that you are qualified for, but working in an unrelated industry is not a step in the right direction. It is also important not to take a position that will make your life unhappy.

Think about using an online recruitment agency as a means to get a job instead of spending all of your time searching online. Use the network of people that you know to find out about available positions. Change things up on a regular basis for best results and network, you never know who may be looking for your skill set.

Make time for yourself while looking for jobs that will help your career. Do not devote all your energy to job searching, as this will tire you out. Learn new skills, spend time with friends, and have fun during the process.

Be positive and spend time with the people that make you happy in your life. You need to have people who are on your side cheering you on during this tough time, not those who will make your life unhappy.
