Looking for a job while you already have one can be very stressful. Many find themselves looking after work, during breaks, before work, etc. This pattern can make looking for your new job feel scattered and unorganized.
The Daily Muse has put together a step-by-step guide that is guaranteed to kick-start your job search in 10 hours.
The first step is to dedicate an entire day to this preparation plan. Ask you boss for a personal day, don’t answer work emails—stay unplugged. This will help you stay focused on your job search.
The Daily Muse developed an hour-by-hour plan for your job search day, including a brainstorming session, a networking lunch, and company research. There are a few steps here that require some advance preparation, such as the networking lunch, so be sure to make these plans a few weeks in advance so you don’t waste your day.
Dedicating a full day to your job search will help you focus and reflect on what you really want for your next career move. Good luck!
