How to keep a positive mindset during a job search

With most job adverts currently receiving between 100-200 applications ๐Ÿ˜ณ, we all know it's a tough market out there. Job searching at the best of times can get us down. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

๐ŸŒŸ Here are my top 10 tips for staying positive during the job search ๐ŸŒŸ

๐Ÿ Celebrate the small wins

๐Ÿ Only job search for half the day

๐Ÿ Enjoy the other half - do something fun

๐Ÿ Share the load - meet up with ex colleagues

๐Ÿ Create a routine and set daily / weekly goals

๐Ÿ Get inspired - learn something new, watch TED talks

๐Ÿ Practice self care & kindness - relax, meditate or exercise

๐Ÿ Get practical - update the resume or LinkedIn profile

๐Ÿ Consider volunteering

๐Ÿ Finally, remember what your value is - skills, experience and attributes. A slow job search isn't a reflection of you, it's often just a reflection of the job market.

๐ŸŒผ Bonus Tip - Try visualisation - not for everyone but I'm a big believer in what you put out you get back.
