Avoiding job search depression

Getting it right matters more than how long it takes

Internalize these 3 truths before starting your search:

  • I will get a job that changes my life.
  • It doesn’t matter how long it takes-this is a short-term investment in a long career.
  • I will put the extra effort in to get a job that will get me on the right trajectory.

Repeat these phrases, and believe.

Managing your happiness

You are more important than any one application, interview, or job offer.

  • Practice good happiness habits throughout your job search
  • Exercise and eat right
  • Do things you enjoy-sports, hanging out with friends, reading
  • Learn new things – reading, watching, and listening

Employers want to hire happy, healthy, and energetic people
