Staying positive during your job search is critical because “positive attracts, negative repels”.
So here are six strategies to help you do just that because you need to attract the right people to network with, the right opportunities that will be shared with you, and ultimately, this positive attitude will be evident when you are interviewing for that job!
1 - Practice Self Care: This means getting exercise every day and getting the endorphins going! Even if it's just 30 minutes a day - it means a tremendous amount. This also means keeping yourself looking good and getting dressed each day, even if you are staying home. Staying in your PJs and watching TV all day will spiral you down to somewhere you don't want to go.
2 - Keep a Daily Schedule: You need to put aside 3 - 6 hours per day for your job search. So keep your calendar scheduled for this amount of time every day. Do other things, but do not let those other things take time away from this very important effort. You are unemployed, but you do have a job: it's to find a job. You just aren't getting paid for it - but it's vitally important time that you must dedicate every day.
