Time is our most valuable currency. If you are looking for a job or haven’t had the time to look for a job, then spend this month making time by using a time blocking schedule to reach your goals. If your calendar is full due to other responsibilities, take it one day and one task at a time.
Block the time every week to job search, another block for targeting your resume, another block for applying to the position. This is time consuming but scheduling it will increase your percentage of being successful in completing the tasks.
For extra support and leads, start working with a Vet Jobs Career Specialist to assist you with job opportunities. On days you feel unmotivated, reach out to a colleague or friend for a coffee break. Networking is always a good idea and could lead to opportunities.
