Searching for a job can be a difficult and sometimes lonely activity. Getting ghosted after applying (and following up) or getting rejections is frustrating and can dampen your job-seeking spirits.
But generally, the only way to land a new job is to keep searching. And sometimes, the only way to keep searching is to stay motivated. So, how do you get (and stay) motivated to apply for jobs? By boosting your confidence and shaking things up. Here’s how!
How to Get Motivated to Apply for Jobs Accentuate the Positive To get your motivation back on track, try focusing on all the positives in your professional and personal life.
Create a list of your professional accomplishments and strengths. Sure, you probably already have these things on your resume, but rewriting them can help reinforce that you possess the skills that employers want. And who knows? You may come up with additional accomplishments and strengths to add to your resume!
Then, make a list of all your personal strengths and accomplishments. While this list will likely include things you wouldn’t put on your resume (unless your origami skills are essential to the role), it’s a great way to help you remember that you’re more than your job and you have an interesting and various assortment of skills.
Looking at these lists every day will remind you of all of the amazing things you have and will continue to accomplish. And this positive reinforcement can help lift your spirits, giving your job search the spark it needs.
Confide in Others Sometimes it can help to talk things through with friends. And while your friends are your friends for a reason, during this stressful time, it’s important to confide in the friends with an optimistic attitude.
While a friend who says, “It’s too bad the job market is terrible right now” might mean well, it may not be what you need to hear when you’re frustrated and need the motivation to continue your job search. Instead, talk to the positive friend who says, “I know you’re going to connect with a fantastic job!”
Ask For Help Searching for a new job (no matter the reason) can be lonely at times. But that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Another great way to get yourself motivated to apply for jobs is to ask for some job search help.
Consider asking your trusted friends and family for some honest and objective feedback about your resume or cover letter. They may see things you don’t and could offer fresh, new ways to sell yourself to employers.
If that’s not an option, consider enlisting the aid of a career coach. These professionals have expert knowledge you can leverage. And they can also provide you with the positive support and motivation you need to keep your job search going.
Mix It Up Another great way to get motivated to apply for jobs is to mix things up!
If you’ve been using the same “big name” job boards, try a more niche job search site that focuses on your career field or only posts openings from certain kinds of employers. Or, try working your network a little more to see if your connections have anything new for you or can connect you with someone else who might be able to help you. And consider leveraging your social media presence to enhance your personal brand and connect with employers.
Using any and all of these methods to shake up your job search can help you find the motivation you need to reengage with your job search.
Make a Plan Many things about a job hunt are out of your control, but not everything. Don’t focus on what you can’t control. Instead, focus on what you can control.
Create a job search plan with 30-, 60-, and 90-day goals. These short-, medium-, and long-term goals give you something to shoot for and ways to measure your progress. Setting goals will also help your job search stay on track.
As you work through your plan, periodically evaluate where you are. This will not only help you see what goals remain (and the steps you need to take to accomplish them) but will also help you see how far you’ve come. Then, take a moment to celebrate everything you’ve accomplished to help motivate you to keep going.
Eyes on the Prize Finally, remember to take a step back every once in a while to remember why you’re searching for a new job. Whether it’s paying down debt and saving more money thanks to a higher salary or eliminating your commute with a remote job, remembering the “why” can be all the motivation you need.
Time to Get Motivated Even though the average job search takes three to six months, it’s normal to feel frustrated when it feels like you aren’t making any progress, no matter how long your job search is taking.
When you’re feeling down, frustrated, or just plain angry, try some of the above tips to reinvigorate yourself and find your motivation to keep up the job search and applying for jobs.

This past year was met with many challenges for me. It started with the choices I made in the past. Hoping for a positive outcome, only to be met with disappointments. This has made me stronger for the future. I try not to allow the negative to stand in the way of my future. We all have lost a loved one, or know someone who has this past year. Take the memories left behind to last a life time. Be Humble when dealing with others. Show Compassion toward one another.
As the New Year 2022 begins, I promise to do my best when sharing Positive Thoughts in the Future. To Listen More to Other’s and Not be Judged or to Judge Others.
To Be More Open-Minded when Dealing with Other’s. To Learn More each day and share #MyThoughts
It's a freaking joke!!! Horrible place to work
Is it smart to let prospect employers know on your resume or cover letter that you're COVID-19 vaccinated? Many jobs opportunities out there are even including vaccination info and requirements on the application process. The Pro I see is that, by disclosing you're vaccinated -booster too- you may have a leg up on other candidates that choose not not disclose their vaccination status.... on the Con side... it is private medical information after all. Thoughts? #coronavirus #interview #jobsearch #wordsofadvice #application #mythoughts
