Finding the Balance in Job Searching

Finding the Balance in Job Searching: On To Do Side: Set Limits, Change Up Workspace, Take Breaks, On Don't Do Side: Get Lost in the Details, Produce Less in More Time, Go Without Pause or Renewal

Here are five ways to keep you going in your job search, prevent burnout and get you to the finish line, HIRED!

Set limits

Setting limits creates balance and increases the chances of success. Start by blocking off your time. Limits help you to keep the whole picture in mind, rather than getting lost in the details. Setting limits encourages you to manage your time wisely, which is a great skill to practice and add to your resume.

Break into Small Parts

When you break down the search into parts, you can produce more in a shorter amount of time. Break your efforts into minutes, hours, or days. For example, Monday, look for jobs and save, Tuesday write cover letters for certain types of work (add specifics later) and tailor your resume, etc. Doing it this way helps keep you organized.

Change up Workspace

Give yourself a new workspace. Go to your favorite café, library, or your patio. A change of scenery can ignite a spark to change your approach to your search. The key is to find what puts you in a creative and productive mode.

Find Things that Give You Joy

Following the previous point, practice often what fills your energy cup. When you’re “on” without pause and renewal, you can burnout, producing less than required leaving you feeling unaccomplished. When you practice the things you enjoy, you keep your mind sharp and in a healthy place to keep going, even when you encounter undesirable responses within your job search.

Take Breaks

Lastly, take breaks! Taking breaks allows your brain to recharge and to refocus. Job searching can be a weary task, with a lot of work on the front end. Drinking water, going for a walk, are things that will stimulate your mind and body, helping you think and work more clearly.
