Job Search Mondays

Getting a job changes every aspect of your life, but there's one thing that won't change from your job search days: Sometimes you are going to have a case of the Mondays.  Those are the days when it seems like an absolute chore just to lift your head off the pillow.  If you have already been treating your job hunt like a full-time job, you have probably already had quite a few days like this.  Instead of taking those "five more minutes" in bed, here are some motivation tips you can use to get yourself on task:

  • The more time you spend looking for work, the more free time you will have at the end of the day.
  • Your dream job is waiting for you.  If you spend too much time slacking off, you will be wasting time you could be using to craft your best cover letter.
  • Getting in the routine of waking up at normal hours will better prepare you when you finally get that job.  You're going to have to get back on a work schedule eventually, you might as well start now.
Mondays can be rough, but we have to deal with them.  It's one of those unfortunate facts of life.  Following these tips will help you shake off those Monday blues and help you accomplish big things.
