Searching When You Have A Job: Not Being in Control

BE READY FOR FRUSTRATION

When we are at work, we are in control of our work schedules and, most of the time, our daily schedules.  When looking for a job, the control is in the hands of another person(s).

Keep in mind the following:

  • You will be frustrated when you set up a meeting, begin to travel to the meeting, and then get a cell phone call that the person needs to cancel
  • You will, most likely, miss your child’s softball or soccer game when that happens, adding to the frustration
  • Always act as if nothing happened no matter how often you have to reschedule
  • Do not conclude that the other person doesn’t want to see you because they have missed two meetings
  • Anticipate that the closer you get to a job offer the longer the process will take
  • Be patient!
