You could be filled with fear if you’ve been out of the job market for any length of time. It’s also discouraging when you realize your job search is taking more of your time than you had anticipated.

To conduct a successful job search, you must be brave enough to change your mindset to have more confidence and focus. Make small steps to improve and improve every day until you achieve the goals you set.

Evaluate what you are doing that is working and what is not. Improve your areas of weakness, take additional courses, revise your resume and spend a minimum of 35 hours a week in your job search. Commit to doing what it takes, and you will get your next job.
