You’ve prepared your resume and cover letter, done some research on what jobs are out there, submitted your application to several jobs, even gone on a few interviews -- now what? It’s important to stay motivated and positive during the job search process. There will be waiting periods and you will most likely be turned down on several offers. Do not be discouraged -- keep plugging away. Think of each interview as practice and you will eventually land a job.
To help stay positive during the job search, also remember to take care of yourself. Regular sleep, exercise and good nutrition are important. Celebrate small successes along the way to help keep yourself motivated. Surround yourself with positive people; negative people can bring you down fast even if they mean well.
Lastly, be persistent! Keep going until you find a job. Persistence means keep applying, emailing companies, following up, developing goals and meeting them and utilizing all available resources.
