Many people say that when you are unemployed, looking for employment should be your full time job. This could be misunderstood to mean that you need to hit the pavement and apply for as many jobs as possible. The more work you apply for, the better chance you will have at getting a secure employment position that will give you the financial security that you have been looking for.

But wait. While this tactic could prove beneficial in the search for a new career, it can also cause trouble. For those lucky enough to find work right away and those who were spared the stress resulting from months of looking for the perfect job, this may be difficult to understand. However, when times are tough and employment is hard to come by, it is important to make sure you are pacing yourself so that you do not burn out.

If you find the job hunt taking a long time, it is important to make sure that you take a small break. This holds true even if it means taking a day off from the job hunt. You can still follow up on good leads that you may hear about or think of on your days off, but for the most part, you simply need to take that time for yourself. When you push yourself too hard on a long and extended job hunt, you will possibly give up or simply become less productive.

Remember that potential employers will read signs of disinterest and lack of productivity. In turn, this could become the reason that you are not hired. This will then lead you into a vicious cycle: when you are not hired, you have to keep looking for work. And when you have to keep looking for work, you continue to feel burned out.

If you have a friend or a family member that can help you on your job search, it will help you to take advantage of that. Allow them to look through classifieds or to talk with people who would know about potential job openings. By allowing others to help you, you will not face the pressure totally alone and this will prevent a fast burn-out. Take advantage of each and every resource that is available to you.

Post your resume on job posting boards and search engines. This will allow a lot of the job search work to be done even when you are not actively working on it. Potential employers will hire someone to look for candidates for open positions. If your resume is posted on such sites where it can be found, it makes it easy for employers to find you as well while taking a huge load of stress away from you.
