How to keep a positive mindset during a job search

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

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

🍏 Celebrate the small wins

🍏 Only job search for half the day

🍏 Enjoy the other half - do something fun

🍏 Share the load - meet up with ex colleagues

🍏 Create a routine and set daily / weekly goals

🍏 Get inspired - learn something new, watch TED talks

🍏 Practice self care & kindness - relax, meditate or exercise

🍏 Get practical - update the resume or LinkedIn profile

🍏 Consider volunteering

🍏 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.

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