Survive the Search

To survive the search, maintain confidence in your ability to keep trying to reach your goal. The sidebar Balancing the Scales at right provides some guidelines for assessing an eventual job offer that will help ensure that you don't accept a position out of desperation.

But what do you do if you don't get an offer or a contract? Assess what you did and identify what you could do differently next time. Was your résumé tailored to the specific position or assignment? How could you be more effective in the interview? Review the experience with a trusted colleague or friend who can review the results objectively and make some suggestions that will improve your chances for success the next time. Be flexible, expand your resources for leads, and be receptive to alternative options, and above all, maintain the motivation to continue your job search or marketing campaign. Follow the tips and tools in this Info-line, and you are bound to be successful in your job search or marketing campaign. Good luck!
