Motivate Yourself for the Job Search

People searching for employment must keep themselves motivated throughout the job search. It's sometimes hard to get or remain motivated in the face of rejections.
Here are a few motivational tips to help:
  • Determine what you want. What type of job? What industry? What location? What tasks? Be specific rather than saying, "I'll take anything."
  • Visualize being in your dream job. See yourself going to work, sitting at your work space, performing tasks you love.
  • Prepare yourself for employment. Update your skills if necessary. Take an inexpensive or free class at a reputable school or agency if necessary.
  • Prepare a modern resume. Get help if necessary.
  • Practice interviewing with a friend, all the while visualizing that you are interviewing with the company of your dreams.
  • Get up everyday and do something to move yourself closer to getting a job. Inertia causes boredom and depression.
  • Find a mentor to help in your job search.
  • If you still have a hard time motivating yourself, find a cheerleader who will cheer you on and keep you motivated.
Take action every day even if it is a small step. It’s by taking those daily steps that you can reach your goal of getting a job.

What action will you take today?
