It is true that if you’re unemployed, you need to look for a job. But it is also true that it can get very taxing if you spend hours at a time looking for a job, only to come up with results that are not helpful in any manner. If you’re getting discouraged, it can be easy to get sloppy about your job search. Performing a quick job search may be the best way to handle the search for a new job this will prevent you from getting weighed down in an endless cycle of hours spent job searching.

Ensuring you keep your job search short means that you efficiently look for a lot of positions. It also means you set a certain work rhythm for yourself and keep your job-search activities limited to a fixed period every day. After this, give yourself a break and take up something else before getting back to more job searching. This should help keep you from getting bored or discouraged. It also means that you will be relaxed and ready to manage other aspects of the job search when that real job break does happen.

Here are some tips on how you can manage the process of job hunting down:

(1) Bookmark those sites that you had good luck with finding relevant work from, and check back at least once a day. You never know when that perfect job may pop up, so make sure you check your job sites at least once a day to make sure there’s nothing you may have missed.

(2) Use your word processor to create a master list of all your job and educational experience, work history, and any other relevant qualifications or activities you may want to highlight. In today’s economy especially, it’s likely that you may be applying for jobs in different sectors maybe they overlap, true, but it’s likely that you’re going to need a slightly different resume for each employer. Your master list can help you in this. Create a template with your name and contact information at the top. If you have an objective, you can slightly change the objective for different jobs. Then cut and paste relevant work and educational history from your master template for each resume so that it matches the position you’re looking for.

(3) Set a time limit because it can be discouraging to simply wander around endlessly on job sites, or obsessing over your resume, in hopes that you’ll get that ‘perfect’ job. Like with any type of work you do, make sure you take frequent breaks in your job search. Every 90 minutes or so, find something else to do before you go back to the job search refreshed.

(4) Register and have jobs sent to you directly from the sites. A lot of these jobs sites will have relevant jobs sent to you on upon your request, so sign up for some of these jobs and e-mail lists and let the jobs come to you. You can peruse them quickly to determine which one is a good fit.

(5) Understand that tomorrow is another day to deal with. Get in the habit of spending at least an hour and a half a day on your job searches, broken up into small segments if you need to. Spending a little time every day on your job search is a lot more proactive than spending eight hours in one sitting.
