Job search tips for the holidays

Are you looking for some last minute job search tips and help during the holidays? An article from the Atlanta Journal Constitution might be just what you need to get some inspiration while you’re on your job search: Counting your job search blessings.

Here’s a quick excerpt:

“For job seekers and those who have been struggling with finances, the exercise of counting one’s blessings may seem laced with irony. We’re nearing the end of what has been a difficult year for countless people. With unemployment stubbornly high, catastrophic housing markets trapping people in over-leveraged homes and disasters plaguing every corner of the Earth, despair is starting to seem like the logical way to greet each day.

Not so fast. If you’re in a job search, you simply can’t afford feelings of despair. Hopeless job seekers don’t find jobs for one simple reason: They stop trying. If you’re coming close to this place of self-fulfilling prophecy, it’s time to break the cycle. It’s time to start counting your job search blessings.”

When you count your blessings it can help get you in a positive job search mode, with the right attitude. Maintaining a positive attitude will help keep your energy up for things like networking, opportunities. It’s important to boost your energy and focus so that you keep moving forward. Don’t let yourself end up back on the couch.

One of my group coaching clients went to a church networking event recently and had great success. They got a lead on a job opening they hadn’t heard about and currently is in the application process. This person’s mindset and drive helped them move forward and make this connection. Churches can be a great outlet for a networking group. Attending church functions where you can socialize and connect with people is a networking opportunity that some people don’t think about. You’d be surprised at how easy it is to utilize networking. You just have to have the right attitude and keep moving forward.
