Are You Suffering from Job-Search Fatigue? [INFOGRAPHIC] was originally published on Firsthand.
Searching for a job is, in itself, a full-time job. Eight hours of polishing your resume and cover letter, applying to positions, networking, and interviewing can take a lot out of you, and doing all that for an extended period of time can really take its toll. Burnout comes in all shapes and forms, and you don’t have to be employed full-time in order to experience it. When unemployment drifts on, it develops its own feedback loop: Physical and mental health issues impair your ability to make good decisions and manage your job search.
To catch this loop as early as you can, Resume.io created a guide to identifying and defeating job search fatigue. The guide covers how to manage your job search project without it running rings around you, as well as how to calm your existing fatigue to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
