Tip #1: Do not take a break from your job hunt until you’ve found a job, and this means weekends.
Some folks try to game the job hunt. These folks tell themselves, “If I apply on Saturday, I look desperate, but Sunday evening looks much better.” I say bullshit.
As a creature with a hunter-gatherer past, you should be looking for work now, and you should have fun looking for it.
Think of it this way. If you take today off, somebody else gets to be the first cover letter from Saturday in someone’s inbox.
Tip #2: Scour the web for Job Boards (e.g. craigslist) and subscribe to as many RSS feeds as you can. Have the RSS feeds go to your mobile if you have to.
I basically took all the RSS feeds from the Job Boards that I love like Authentic Jobs and put them into my RSS reader. My top priority is to read each feed and then if I get too much info, filter out the feeds or posts I don’t need using Thunderbird.
Wish me luck!
