Get past the loss of a job, a career or a dream. Move toward that place called the future. It is very difficult to have a successful job search if one is dwelling on the past. Feeling hurt, angry, bitter and feeling like a victim is not healthy nor is it good for a job search. Employers don’t often hire hurting candidates.
We will see how moving to a positive position can and will affect the outcome of finding your next career position. We will suggest a few methods for getting past the “why” of your situation.
Now that the income is gone or substantially decreased for a time, what strategies might be deployed to stay afloat? How long might the job search last? Based on some factors that are under your control and some that aren’t, you can positively or negatively affect how long the search will last.
Once you know how long your job search may last, you can develop pro-active plans to survive financially and minimize worry. Then you can focus on your job search plans in a positive way.
Get this picture … you can and must choose where you are going, or you might end up somewhere else! Choices abound. Even when we think we have no choice; we often have several alternatives. And if we don’t choose, that is a choice too! The choices we make determine our destination… our FUTURE.
In a successful job search, one chooses a “future focus” consciously, carefully and confidently. It saves time, allows others to help and engages all one’s resources toward one goal. The future focus involves decisions about career, job, geography, industry, company and boss.
It seems many people still believe that employment is found by working really hard to locate available jobs. But that is only a part of the process, and it is often the weakest part! Most job seekers waste time, are looking in the wrong places, and do little to manage their time.
A successful job search employs multiple approaches, is thoughtful and prayerful. Many want to know how to plan well and then how to turn the plan into results. With the right mix of methods and weekly prioritization, the job search will achieve success.
