Yep, it’s Monday Morning! Time to rise and shine and start the week off right! (No, I’m not a naturally chipper morning person. But the littlest Mendez has been up since 6am, so it’s practically mid-morning for me by now!)
So, let’s talk about your job search week. Do you have your to-do list for this week planned?
- Your list of phone calls ready to make?
- Your “get out of the house” networking activities on your calendar?
- Your list of “other” – working on that web portfolio, reworking your resume, writing that “value proposition letter”?
Remember, you should be thinking of your time as “billable hours.” You MAIN priority are tasks that are “moneymakers,” i.e. get you in front of decision makers. Everything you do revolves around that. It’s easy to get bogged down with busywork and thinking that you are accomplishing something. But if all you do is push paper around it’s not going to get anywhere.
So, prioritize that mile-long to-do list with your most valuable activities first. Then, in whatever time you have leftover in your administrative paperwork, extra mumbo jumbo. Remember, your job search IS your full time job!
PS. If I haven’t heard from you lately and you don’t have anything already on the calendar, email me now and let’s schedule our weekly call so we can catch up and we can figure out how I can help you with next steps. Not sure what should be on that to-do list for this week? Well, chatting with me today should be first thing, so we can set that list up together!
Good luck and break a leg everyone!
