Tips To Surviving Your Job Search
LAS VEGAS, NV — Career consultants say that 90% of a job search is learning to manage your emotions. Everyone suffers some stress during his or her job search. The key is to never let it get the best of you! Searching for a job can evoke a range of emotions. There are ways that you can control the twists and turns.
Try to look for value in your emotions. This will help put the situation in perspective, and you will be able to think clearly. Fear is another emotion that most job seekers face. Fear can often make you feel that the situation is out of control. To get out of this mind-trap, you can make and keep promises to yourself. Set goals that will empower your mind and get you into action mode. Start writing a journal or blog and register all your fears and the possible steps that you can take to overcome them.
Another very good way of beating job search stress is to participate in a support group. The most important thing to remember when facing the stress of looking for a job is to remain positive and active. By not letting your mind become idle, you can stop negative thoughts and fears from taking hold in the first place.
