Keep Going...

I have definitely covered how delaying your job search during the summer or the holidays can be problematic, but there is one other time that can challenge a jobseeker – back to school.  It is so easy when the children go back to school or the young adults go back to college to take time off of your job search.  The problem is, it is hard to get your search started again any time you take time off.  While all the back to school shopping, and meetings, and upcoming events that start right after school begins can take up your time, you still want to make the time to search.  Even though your job search may be a little bit more abbreviated as you ready youngsters for school, don’t stop, keep going, the reward of a consistent job search is that bright, shiny new job.  To your job search success!
