Is your job search getting the best of you?  With so many people competing for jobs, it is understandable that you are frustrated about not having landed some opportunity.  However, you can’t give up on your search.  Instead, learn how to deal with frustration productively.  Remember these tips:

Create a goal list which includes target companies, people you have networked with, and any follow ups with job applications you have completed- By knowing what you want to do and tracking your progress, you will have this information for future reference and a reminder of your goal, which is getting hired.

Have your resume reviewed by a professional recruiter or resume writer and make the adjustments needed- It can’t hurt to have someone else look at your resume for mistakes that could make a difference in getting more interviews.

Take a day off- While you should spend much time on your job search, it might be beneficial to take a day away from it.  Focusing on something else will loosen you up, and release any stress you’re feeling before returning to the job search.

Experiencing job search frustration is a possibility.  How you handle it will factor in to whether or not you land a new job.

  2. Even though it’s frustrating, you still have to shake it off when you are communicating with anyone who can give you a job, like at job fairs and on job interviews. The people I hired from these all had a great attitude no matter what.
