Have you been complaining about your job, how boring it is, or how you hate your boss, or you’re not learning anything new BUT you have done nothing about it?

If this sounds like you, and you keep saying you are doing a job search, but doing nothing, that’s called procrastination.  What are you waiting for?  The time to start is now.
To overcome inertia and procrastination, break down the overwhelming task of a job search into small, bite-sized pieces.
Begin with one step today:
1) Call a friend to say you are starting.
2) Re-work your resume to meet your job target.
3) Make a list of companies where you want to work.
4) Answer one ad on the a job board or make one phone call to set up a meeting.
5) Set a schedule to work 3 hours a day on your job search
6) Get a buddy to call you once a week to ask what have done and what will you do next week.
Does all this sound like too much?  Then you need to take the next step:
7) Hire a career coach..  What can a career coach do for you?  A career coach can help define your job target – if you want to change jobs, or job titles, or move to a different industry, or become a consultant.  A job coach can make a plan for your job search that includes your targets, companies and networks.  A coach can offer emotional support when you are anxious or overwhelmed and don’t know what to do next.  A career coach can help you with follow-up.  A coach can help you practice for the interview.  And, probably most important of all, a career coach keeps you accountable and motivated to continue in the long haul.
Remember: a job search is a marathon, not a sprint.  It may take 3 months, 6 months or a year or more to find the right fit for you.  Isn’t that worth the investment in yourself of one percent of your salary?
