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. 👇👇👇
🌟 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.
