It can be difficult to stay motivated when looking for jobs, and particularly in the current market. The recession isn’t making it easy for anyone to find job opportunities, and many people have to accept a step down in terms of income and responsibilities. You can make things a bit easier on yourself, though, by bearing in mind some of the following tips when looking for jobs; these can include everything from making the most of online resources to doing new training courses, and finding ways to better structure your day.

Making the Most of Online Resources

There are many resources that you can make use of when you’re doing your job search online. Primarily, you should make sure that you’re signed up to recruitment sites, and that you have as comprehensive a profile as you can, which can make it easier for you to be matched up with potential jobs. Joining professional networking sites like LinkedIn is also essential, as is creating a personal website that can showcase your work and past experiences.

Doing Training Courses

Everything you can do to build up your CV when you’re unemployed is crucial, even if it might involve doing something that you wouldn’t normally; this might include taking a short course in a specific type of software, which can then be added to your CV when you apply for general or temporary office work. You may also find that doing a language course can make you appear more employable when you’re trying to set yourself apart from the competition for a particular role.

Setting Small Goals

Rather than trying to go for the ideal job, or giving up when you can’t find anything, set yourself small goals for finding leads. Treat the job application process like a job, and make sure that you vary your methods so that you don’t get too disheartened; this can involve making several trips to the job centre every week, and can also see you send off a certain amount of applications per day or week.

Structure Your Day

When you’re looking for work, it’s important to give yourself enough structure during the day so that you’re able to focus and not get into bad habits. This means getting up at a decent time in the morning, and giving yourself plenty of breaks that mirror a normal working day. You can also designate a certain part of the day for searching for particular jobs, as well as for updating your CV.

Do Voluntary Work

If you can’t find paid work, consider completing some voluntary work assignments or internships; this can be an excellent way to get your foot in the door at a company, and can also get you into a working routine. You can continue to search for work at the same time as volunteering, and can view it as a way to keep yourself busy and around other people when you’re trying to make other things happen.
