First, if you are serious about getting a job, it is crucial to be available for job hunting all the time. You should treat your job search like it is a full-time job. That means devoting 5-8 hours per day — during business hours, five days a week.

A successful job hunt requires planning, and time must be allocated for each step of the process that you're about to go through. The keys to approaching job hunting are repetition, determination, and continuous improvement.

Job hunting begins by accepting the idea that you are looking for a job. Most of us change jobs many times in our lives. In good times, making a change is almost painless. In high unemployment times, competition can be fierce because many people are applying for the same jobs.

You won't be able to figure out how long the entire process of job hunting is going to take. It depends on many things that are out of your control. Be prepared to have constant emotional highs and lows during your job hunt.

Searching for a job also involves extensive preparation. You will set production goals, output, goals, and progress throughout the entire experience. But if you follow a disciplined process in job hunting, you will keep getting better at it.

Best of luck!

Job hunting is indeed, an intense process. You should take note of during your job hunt to persist until you get the job. Along the way, you will see yourself having additional stress and anxiety, not knowing how the future lies ahead.

Well, your job hunt will be more effective if you take the time to plan. As Dwight Eisenhower said, "Planning is everything. The plan is nothing." That means success depends on having a clear picture of what you want. Having one keeps you moving in the right direction.

If you have lost your way, you will need a beacon to bring you back on track. Then it's time to find things that give you hope. There's a variety of techniques I use to approach this whenever I need some fuel. I listen to relaxing music, exercise, read, do yoga, or meditate. Doing any of these activities will help me rediscover hope when it slips away during my job hunt.

The entire journey of job hunting can be difficult, but it doesn't have to be! Here are my job hunting tips. The process of job hunt that I advocate involves seven steps.

1. Accept - It doesn't matter if I was laid off or voluntarily quit my job. I have to accept where I am and what I'm doing. Job hunting is entirely natural; no one must feel bad about it.

2. Assess – I need to have a clear idea of who I am, what I can do, what I want to do, and in what environment I want to do it.

3. Target – I'll narrow down a list of companies I wish to work at. I only apply to jobs that I believe are a good fit for me.

4. Present - I present myself to my connections and start networking with relevant people in my field. At this stage, I'll also send in resumes, job applications, and begin networking.

5. Interview – The goal of all the activities done previously is to get myself selected for interviews.

6. Negotiate - Having an offer means it is time to negotiate the details of the job. Getting to this stage means more research is needed.

7. Begin again - I'll do everything that will make me successful in the new job. But I'll also continue job hunting for roles I see potential in after some time.

I hope these job search tips help you succeed in a competitive market and get the job you want.

Every time I change jobs, I treat job hunting like a full-time job. It means I dedicate 40 hours per week, at the very least. Because I learned from experience that if I put more effort into my job hunt, I will be ahead of my competitors.

The rate at which you can find the next job is the opposite of the unemployment rate. This means, the higher the employment rate, the longer it takes to find the next job.

I agree that the process could be stringent, but job hunting is an excellent opportunity to develop leadership skills. The art of self-leadership involves all the elements of job hunting. You are your boss. You set your hours, target opportunities, and manage your own setbacks.

The ultimate job search advice from me to you: A successful job hunt requires persistence, routine, preparation, and acceptance. The time you spend job hunting is an investment in yourself and your career. Do everything in your power to make that new position happen!
