Job Search Tips: Coping With Disappointment

Don't forget to read the 4 tips below on on to work with disappointment during your executive job search after you watch this great 2:18 min video. This about the way the wisdom in this video can also be applied to you and your executive six figure job search. Stay in the game, get back up and back in the game.  Keep you goal in mind and keep working on getting better and closer to achieving it by landing that next great six figure job. A typical six figure  job search consists of a lot of ups and downs, small triumphs and disappointments working toward the final goal, of landing that next great job. I discovered some simple tips by the author Cheryl Richardson on the subject that I wanted to share with you today. Richardson suggests that in times of disappointments that you ask yourself the following four questions:

  1. Which part of me is this loss supposed to strengthen?

Job Search question:  How is this job search making me a better and stronger person in terms of my motivation, ambition and resolve to find that next great job? 

2.What can I learn from this? Job Search question: What am I learning about myself and professionally while I am doing my job search that is leading me toward a better job search final decision?

3.Who can help me transform this loss into gain? Job Search question: Who can I be helping and networking with to help me become a better person and grow through this transition?

4.How can what I’ve learned help me help others? Job Search question: How can I share what I have learned and am learning in my job search with others, so they can benefit from what I have learned and save them time, and improve their job search?

In her book Body + Soul, she writes, “When we get to the other side of a letdown, there awaits a great opportunity to use what we’ve learned in service to ourselves and others.” Bear fruit with patient endurance. (Luke 8:15)

Have a great week!

Remember to find the positive side of what you are coping and going through. I always say to myself, “There has to be a reason, I am supposed to being going through this. There must be something that a Higher Power wants me to learn and become a better person helping others and making a difference in this world.” Blessings,

Job Search Tips: Secrets to Good Time Management During Your Job Search

Coping With Executive Job Search Time Lost on Emails  During Your Six Figure Executive Job Search

Coping With Executive Job Search Time Lost on Emails During Your Six Figure Executive Job Search

Handling Email—How to Save Time

 

Control your own time. Don't let it be done for you.

If you are working off the in-box that is fed to you,

you are probably working on the priority of others.

—Donald Rumsfeld

  In the process of moving my website www.ConsumerCareerSearch.com to a new server, 23,000 of my emails got misplaced. As you can imagine then, this subject is very near and dear to my heart. I usually like to get my emails down to about 3,000 at one time, but I currently have 12,000 in one of my accounts. That's actually not as bad as it sounds. It's very easy to find yourself reacting to emails that rob your time.

We all really need to get into the habit of realizing that most emails can wait. During the time frame you have committed to working on your executive job search, remember to focus on your goals for that entire duration. If emails come through that are not related to your executive job search goals for that day, then do not address/reply to them until after dinnertime.

That's not to say that you should just let messages pile up in your inbox. Email is another form of incoming communication that needs to be processed and organized. You can approach this task the same way you did your physical paperwork—in terms of creating folders that will act as "processing stations." When I focus on cleaning up my emails, I start by sorting them. I begin this process by clicking the "From" button. Organizing them this way makes it very easy to delete whole categories of message you know you don't need but have not made it to the "junk" and spam folder.

One new feature with Windows 7 and Norton is that Norton has begun pre-marking emails as spam to make it easier to filter and delete them. Be aware that this project can take some time until you're up to speed, so remember to do it after your normal workday hours or on the weekend.

To start, create folders over in your navigation bar where you want to file emails worth saving. When creating each new folder, make sure you are always at the top of the navigation bar. That way, folders will be alphabetized and will not inadvertently become a sub-folder of something non-related. Like all correspondence, when contending with email, deal with it only once. If you can take care of it in two minutes, do so.

The experts say that you should be able to tackle one-third of your email this way. Now create four more folders in your navigation bar: *ACTION*, *WAITING FOR*, *READ/REVIEW*, and *PRINT*. Specific to your executive job search, you can also label four more files: *JSACTIVE *, *JSWORKING ON*, *JSWAITING ON*, and *JS ANSWERS*. Note that when you use the asterisk before these folders' names, they will be alphabetized at the top of the folder list. I suggest you BCC (blind carbon copy) yourself on all emails related to your executive job search. Either that or remember to forward them to yourself from your Send folder. When they reach your inbox, file them in the appropriate folder.

You can also create a special folder for companies with which you have conducted a lot of activity. Check all of these aforementioned folders I have suggested periodically to see if any of the items can be deleted.

To make this whole process easier, make sure you're a good typist. If you are a slow typist, go to a community college and take a course. You want to be able to type at least 50 words a minute. This ability will save you a lot of time.
