Job Searching in the Time of Covid-19

Job searching is a stressful endeavour at the best of times, and these are not those. Today, I found out that I didn’t get a job that I was excited about. I needed some extra self-care and positive self-talk after getting the news.

How do I…

…stay motivated? – I know what I want to do…marketing! I love strategy, collaboration, creating, mentoring, and trying new things.

…stay hopeful? – I’m deciding that the roles I’ve applied for so far must not have been right for me. The right one at the right company will come along.

…stay confident? – I’m a unique, well-rounded, and experienced marketing professional with great references (and awards) to prove it!

…stay on my game? – I read articles, chat with friends and colleagues, watch webinars, and take online courses…and I decided to build a website. 😀

…deal with being in shared spaces again? – I stay home 95% of the time. Wear a double mask, wash my hands, and keep my distance when I absolutely have to go to the grocery store. That’s all any of us can and should do.

What keeps you motivated and moving forward in these strange times?
