There’s a rumor going around that the economy’s improving. Job creation is on the move. Since good news is meant to be shared, I’m passing on the article “Four signs our recovery may not be entirely ‘jobless’” that should raise your spirits. After you read the article, shake off the blues, rebuild your sagging confidence and ramp up your activity.
That said, here’s a few thoughts to help you raise your activity and shorten your time in search. Despite the good news, you still have to get your butt in gear and work at it.
- Make it a habit to contact at least 10 people everyday.
- Go to a networking meeting, join a professtional association, ask your friends for introductions, reconnect with peers, vendors, alumni groups and onthers both on-line and off.
- Review the email messages you’re sending. Are they clear? Are they meaningful? Do with convey value to others?
- Hit the streets, pick up the phone and work your search. You could be just a “hello and a handshake” from your next great success.
