5 Weakest Excuses For Failing To Job Search 

5 Weakest Excuses For Failing To Job Search

1: I don’t have time. In a job search, carving out just 45 minutes each day to draft and execute a plan can make all the difference.

2: I can’t do this on my own. You don’t have to! Whether tapping into a myriad of complimentary Web resources, or investing in modestly priced careers books, an abundance of job-search resources exist at your fingertips. Careers blogs and articles with advice on how to build your resume, best prepare for an interview, and network can all be found at your local library or bookstore. And don’t forget about the many resume and career coaches that are available for hire. You never need to feel alone in your job search.

3: Job searching is boring. Doing the same old thing over and over will get boring and net the same old stagnant results (or lack thereof). Stop aimlessly wandering the Internet, posting resumes to job boards, and Tweeting and Facebook-ing your job-search woes.

4: I don’t believe in second chances. You’ve failed so many times in your career that you can’t envision it being any different this time, so you just stay where you are, sucking it up and grinding it out at a job you hate. Everyone deserves a second chance and sometimes even a third and fourth. Don’t let your past get in the way of your future.

5: I lack self-control. We all lack self-control when we fail to meet our own expectations. Be in charge of yourself, time, and energy. Only you can establish boundaries as to where you invest your conversations, intellectual efforts, and physical activities. Only you can accept or decline that next job offer, filtering your decision through your wants and needs.
