5. Treat your job search as if it is a full time job.
This means you should work eight hours a day starting with tasks you least enjoy. Pick up your phone and make calls as early in the day as possible – usually this is when you have the most energy. Do not focus too heavily on websites, build relationships, call employers, attend networking events etc. Spend a hour out of your day reading on the career you are trying to get a job with. Using the title professional job seeker may not be something you are proud of, but at least it will be the shortest career you have ever had.
