5 keys to looking for a job successfully (and not dying trying)

"Unemployment has risen by xx thousand people"

"Difficulties of those over 50 to find work"

"Thousands of families face expenses of up to € 500 with going back to school"

"Precarious contracts"

"Many young people with university education are forced to leave their country"

These headlines sound familiar to you, right? They give a very discouraging image for all those who are looking for work. To the frustration that many people suffer from day to day, to negative after negative, to silence after silence of your mobile phone, you add the image of a world that seems to have very little to offer us.

If this were not enough, sometimes you have to add the typical "become an entrepreneur", which although it is an important option to take into account, it is not always the plan B Y it only increases the feeling of guilt and that feeling of "doing nothing". Looking for work, sometimes, despairs and wears you out.

Looking for work without despair: some keys

What to do not to die trying? How to renew your energies day by day and face finding a job?

Looking for a job is something for which [email protected] At some point in our lives we have seen ourselves or we will see ourselves doing it, and it is worth having some tools and tips so as not to decline in that search. Here are 5 essentials:

1. Where to go to look for work?

First of all you have to know what search options and where we can leave our Curriculum vitae. We have from the already known Infojobs (and thousands of other search portals) to the classic of leaving the CV in hand. There are also employment advice centers where they can guide and help you according to your case and specific search websites according to your profession. Professional associations also have their job boards or bulletin boards on which one can advertise.

Send CV via e-mail or go and deliver it in person?

Each option has its advantages and disadvantages. Nowadays with the internet it is very easy to send your CV to many companies, centers and offers (even in some cases it is the only way of contact according to which calls), but there also lies your risk, many people will be sending your CV, so the competition will be higher.

Leaving the CV in hand is more direct, more personal, the company sees you directly and the interest shown is different from a simple email, but its disadvantage is the investment of time that must be spent walking through the different sites that interest us. The best option is to use all routes, both by mail and in person in those offers that interest us the most. Spend all cartridges.

Here are two articles on this topic that can help you have a presentation with greater chances of success:

"Types of CV: which one suits you best?"

2. Is it better to be an employee or an entrepreneur?

Do I become an entrepreneur? Starting your own business can be very tempting, especially if we have been looking for a job without success for a while. But you have to have everything very well organized and tied for that business to work, in addition to doing something purely vocational. Being an entrepreneur is sometimes a 24-hour job, everything will depend on you (at least at the beginning), and the investment of time and money is usually high at first.

For it to work you have to spend a lot of time, and sometimes that involves sacrificing time that you can dedicate to your leisure or to your social and family life. You also have to control important issues that escape many of us, such as accounting or the most legal parts. The key for everything to work is vocation. The vocation will be the energy that will move you to take your business to success, to learn those necessary and unknown topics and to overcome the possible problems and frustrations that may arise.

3. The importance of getting organized (and dosing)

Make a schedule. Not having a job doesn't have to be synonymous with doing nothing and having empty hours. Organize your day, mark what hours you are going to dedicate to looking for work, what hours you are going to dedicate to, for example, taking care of your house or doing the buy, save some free time and to see your friends and family, and yes, why not, reserve a little time to do nothing or see the TV.

We must not stop pampering and taking care of ourselves in this search stageMoments of disappointment, frustration and anger may come, and we must be strong and prepared. In addition, having an organized schedule will take away the feeling of "wasting time."

4. Reflect on what conditions you are willing to accept

One aspect that generates a lot of debate is What are you willing to accept to have a job? Here many factors and situations to take into account play a role, but it is worth knowing what things we will accept and what things we will not. Many companies take advantage of the crisis situation we are suffering and hire on unacceptable conditions taking advantage of people's desperation.

That they do not demand or absorb you more than what you want and need (and watch the legal limits, sometimes they are very fine and play with them in their favor)

5. Who are you and who do you want to become?

Finally, it doesn't hurt to have a end goal: What would you really like to do? What is your dream job? What can you do now to reach that goal? No one can say what the future will bring us and where we will end up, and it is true that there are situations in life that will help you more or less Walking towards your goal, but not losing sight of it, guides us and gives a meaning to what we are doing, even if it is the most messy job in the world. world.
