Keeping a Routine While Job Hunting

Las Vegas Sun

It is difficult to be out of work and look for a job.  The physical demands of the task are great, and the longer it takes, the greater the threat to one's sense of well-being. Helpful suggestions about how and where to look for a job, how to create an effective resume, have a successful interview, etc., are everywhere, and they are worthwhile.

It is important to have a daily routine. Add checking out the agencies that deal with temporary employment and keeping your network of friends and family aware of your situation to your routine. While you are in the process of actively looking, by going on the Internet and checking career web sites, be sure that you are also going out each day and physically checking any leads you get. It is vital that you do something every day in regard to your search for employment.

It's also extremely important that you do your usual morning routine as though you are going to work. Get up, get ready for your day, get dressed and go out, even if only for a walk. Otherwise, it is all too easy to become depressed and distracted from your goal.
