Three ways to motivate your job search


3 hands high 5If you are going through a redundancy process you may find it difficult to remain positive when you get up in the morning and even harder finding the motivation to do a job search each day. If you find yourself putting this off then it’s time to think about your strategy.

Luckily, with the expert help of a personal career coach you will have the support and resources you need to make your job search easier, but you’ll also need a little motivation too. We’ve put together these 3 simple tips to help you.

Focus on routine

Set yourself a timetable as you would when going to work. Create a schedule including start and finish times. Use this timetable to factor in your job search including creating a CV and updating your LinkedIn profile. By keeping it varied you will feel more motivated. You will also be more productive when allocating time to specific tasks. Don’t forget to stay hydrated, take short breaks and allow some time for exercise and fresh air. Keeping a work-style routine will help you to get more done and make the adjustment that much easier when it’s time to return to the workplace once more. Plan your time effectively, if you feel more energised in the morning try and plan your job search around this time. A positive mind set will be reflected in your approach

Create the right environment

Try to set up an office environment with minimal distractions and ensure you’re comfortable and alert. Make a home office with desk, chair and workstation to retain your focus for longer and start your morning with a good breakfast to help keep your energy levels high.

Reward yourself

Set yourself small goals each day, treat yourself to a reward when you have achieved them. Whether you set yourself a goal to apply for five jobs or to review and rewrite your CV, the work and reward process will help you to feel as though you’ve achieved something before the interview invitations and job offers come your way.
