The whole job search effort is completely exhausting and at times just plain pathetic. It is what it is and if you are unemployed know that job search experience is one familiar to everyone at some point and time, so don’t feel alone. One of major mistakes many job seeks make is not being able to keep whole job search experience organized.
Remembering who you spoke to on what day, concerning what job can be a true “mission impossible.”
There are a couple of things that can make whole experience more palatable. Lighten up and write it all down.
1. Write down all names, numbers, address, driving directions, phone and fax numbers associated with your job search. You never know when you will be able to help someone else find a job. Remember good deeds never go unrewarded and what goes around comes back around.
2. Writing a resume for each position is essential and using correct verbs to describe your talents and accomplishments is crucial. It is unlikely in three, five or ten years that you will remember how you described increasing those sales accounts 300%. Keep those old resumes, they will come in handy.
3. This is a very small world and keeping a record of good interviewers could land you a job in future. Always keep in touch with people who make a dynamic impression, even if you don’t get job.
