If the answer to this question is no, then you are probably not maximizing your job search. What a shame it would be to miss the time frame to apply for jobs, or lose contact information because you’re unorganized. By organizing your job search, you will reduce stress and be more focused on getting a job. Consider the following ways to organize your job search:
Create a workspace- Find somewhere that can be or act as your office, which will allow you to concentrate on job search related activities.
Establish a schedule- Decide what times of day you want to search for jobs, work on applications and your resume(s), etc. Remember, choose times that work for you to get the most out of your day.
Categorize your email- Separate emails related to your job search based on their status; for example, jobs applied to. By having your emails organized, you’ll be able to quickly find and keep up with any communication concerning your job search.
Finding a job can be a challenge, so why not make the process a little easier. Organizing your job search reduces stress and allows you to maximize it. Your preparation will eventually meet opportunity.
