Smell Smoke? Job Search Burnout

Do smell smoke from job search burnout or did you over-cook your dinner? Here are some signs that you may be experiencing job search burn-out:
  • Stopped applying for jobs because “I am not going to get it, so why apply?”
  • Avoiding looking for jobs or reaching out to potential new networking con-tacts.
  • Taking more naps than applying for jobs.
  • Curt/short temper with family or friends-don’t think you have been rude? Ask them.
  • You find fault with every job lead
Remember, we all experience job search burnout, the key is to recognize it and act before it costs you a great opportunity.
