Procrastinating on Your Job Search


Picture this scenario for a moment:

You've already been working on your job search for most of the day and frankly, you're quite exhausted.  You're just about to close your web browser when you see a pretty interesting posting on the nonprofit job board you were browsing.  This looks like the job of your dreams, but there's one problem: you really don't feel like filling out yet another application.  Surely you can put it off for another day, the job is not going to disappear, right?

Not necessarily.

Ah, procrastination.  If you've been through college, you surely know about it.  You know how it works: You really should finish that paper...but there's a big party going on at your friend's dorm.  It can wait a little while.  And when it comes to your nonprofit job search, procrastination can rear it's ugly head again.  Filling out application after application can be mentally exhausting, so the temptation to put off filling another one out can be really strong.  If you really want that dream job, however, you are going to have to fight that temptation.  We are living through one of the most competitive job market's in recent history and, simply put, that dream job is not going to wait for you.  Remember, there are tons of people just like you that are applying to that job, and if you don't take the initiative, you aren't going to get it.

So the next time that you have the urge to procrastinate, keep that in mind.
