Hunting for a job at the moment? Don’t worry I am...

Hunting for a job at the moment? Don’t worry I am too. Luckily this time around I’m prepared for it. If you’re feeling a little flustered and annoyed because you haven’t got one yet - don’t be so hard on yourself. It takes time and persistence. Just like any other hunt.

My first job hunt, I had no idea what I was doing or if I was bringing the right gear. Being ambitious, and totally stupid at the time, I wanted to catch the Grizzly Bear or Great White Shark of jobs. Glad I didn’t. If I had, it would have been by chance and it would have eaten me alive. Instead, I caught a lovely job I could handle. And got through it with all my limbs in tact. 

I’m now on my 3rd job hunt. And what I’ve learnt is hunting for a job isn’t just about catching ‘the big one’ or the first one you find. It’s a sport. It takes time and learning. And going through the process of the hunt will lead you to success. 

Go out, look around, and see what you like. With the skills you have, which job can you aim for? Be realistic. 

Apply effort into studying the job you’re hunting. Read up on its background and behaviors. No point going after something if you don’t know anything about it. You’ll hurt yourself. And there’s no way you’ll catch it.

After that, if you’ve found something you can catch, don’t go in rushing for it. Some animals stalk their prey for days before… well you know… ‘killing it’. Take your time and make sure you’re prepared. 

If, after doing all that, you take aim and miss, so what? Yes, you were SO CLOSE. But don’t beat yourself up because you missed it. The fact you got that close is awesome. Means you’re on the right track and the next job hunt you go on may just be the successful one.

And yes, don’t worry, it will be out there for you. You have a few options on how to get it.

You can go looking for it.
Sit patiently, but attentively, waiting for it.
Or you can throw some bait out to attract it to you. 

Just always be on the ball.

Good luck if you’re looking and let me know about your failures or successes.
