Another day, another click to “connect” on LinkedIn. Your motivation bottoms out after searching for the latest variation of the same job with a different name.


5 Things to Do to Be Better at Work


1. Get Specific With Your TO-Do List

When your motivation is low, general job-searching tasks like network and redo resume can be overwhelming. A great way to instantly make your search seem more manageable?2. Look Up Your Career Role Model

When youre job searching, reading description after description requiring five to seven years of experience in a certain field, its hard to remember the truth about career paths: Theyre rarely linear. In fact, most successful people made loops, jumps, and a few skids to get to where they are today.

3. Seek Constructive Criticism From Your Supporters

Your biggest fans can also be your most helpful criticsif you ask them to be. That supportive former co-worker, professor who believed in you, and friend who just gets you all know your full potential and how you could improve. So, if youre feeling like youre trying everything but still getting nowhere, try asking them for some constructive criticism.4. Put Your Career Goals On Paper

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? is a question we all try to avoid. But right now, when youre in a slump, is exactly the right time to answer it. Take some time to make a list of all of your dreams, big and small. Actually putting them on paper will force you to think about what you want to achieve.5. Take Days Off

At one point, I was doing something job-search related every day, from going on informational interviews to searching Indeed for every type of entry-level communications position imaginable. I was burned out. And I found myself losing sight of my main objectives and looking for jobs just to find a job, even if they were not right for me.Presented by:
