*Time Management* it’s everything when unemployed and searching for a job!
When you’re unemployed, looking for a job IS full-time work itself!
Here’s the good and the bad of it-being out of work does afford you the opportunity to conduct a “proper” search for a job, but the downside is “you have too much time”.
A recent article by online job site The Ladders entitled Time Management and the Job Search When Unemployed highlighted the importance of managing time when unemployed and hunting for a job.
- Treat your job hunt “like a regular job”. Set a schedule like a regular job and get up each day at 7AM to prepare for a day’s work of job searching.
- Even though you are unemployed, have something on your resume that is current (i.e. volunteering or consulting) to show that you are doing something between jobs. Plus, these new ‘non-jobs’ could be great opportunities to make business connections that could help you get a real one
