Looking for jobs can be challenging. It can be frustrating and seriously annoying. Not only does it take a lot of work and time to update your resume, research jobs, companies and write a great cover letter to apply to these jobs, then there is usually a lot of waiting involved to hear back from the companies you have applied to and a cumbersome selection process. If you don´t do your homework well in researching and preparing, you will often not even enter the process, or never hear back from your application at all, which can make the whole situation even more frustrating for your as a job searcher.
Having to deal with rejection can be frustrating. In today´s challenging economic situation with high employability and fierce competition on the job market, chances are that you will get “no” as an answer more often than you would like. This can make it even more difficult to motivate yourself for yet another round of job searching and applying. It can be tempting to just quickly apply to a lot of different jobs to diversify your chances, however by not doing the proper preparation, the chances for a “no” obviously increase, creating this vicious circle of frustration.
However, it doesn´t have to be this way. Job searching doesn´t have to be frustrating, it can actually be quite fun, that is if you do it well and if you have a successful approach of course. It all starts with organization, getting yourself organized and creating a system that works for you to keep track of your progress with job searching. This can be an Excel sheet where you have an overview of all jobs you are interested in with different columns for the status (e.g. not started, applied, interview, rejected etc.), relevant dates, contact details and important comments to take into account, or a big sheet on the wall where you keep track of everything. Set a goal for how many applications you want to get out each week and mark your progress.
