It’s easy for job seekers to lose steam in a job hunt. They may start out positive and energized, but as the days go on without a positive employer response, their drive and attitude may lag, according to Career Action Resources, LLC. Share these tips to help them regain momentum:

  • Get active. Lack of physical activity can make a person lethargic. Suggest that your job hunters get exercise throughout the day. 
  • Make a schedule. Open-ended hours can make job seekers feel lost. Recommend that they create a daily schedule that includes job searching as their top activity. Include tasks such as calling contacts, following up on job leads, researching employers, and participating in a job search workshop and job club. 
  • Avoid isolation. People lose important connections when they lose a job. Plus, it’s easy to feel lonely when job searching without much human interaction. So they should consider making phone calls instead of always emailing contacts, attending business events, joining job search workshops, and volunteering.

Looking for more ways to educate and motivate job seekers on effective job hunting? Consider using Your Employment Search (YES), a quick, self-guiding job hunt tool.

If you are a workforce or career services professional, please request your complimentary YES review sample.
