- Networking groups – One of the best ways to help improve or boost your job searching morale is to join networking groups. For example, there is a new group that started in New Jersey called, “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”. The founder of the group started the networking group on his own to pool resources together for people who are unemployed or underemployed. So, join a local group or start your own; find like-minded people who are in similar situations and you will be surprised at how people are going through the same struggles as you.
- Alumni Associations – If you are a graduate of any college, anywhere, there is an alumni group. These groups may or may not be active, but you will never know unless you do some research. Majority of college alumni groups are pretty active in helping each other and if the group isn’t active then another avenue for you to explore is the career services department. Most colleges have a few people dedicated to assisting their current students and alumni with finding jobs. These people usually know the HR professionals and hiring managers of local companies and would be able to pass your resume along for you.
- LinkedIn – LinkedIn is the gathering of all professionals in one place. What better place to go when you want to talk to people? LinkedIn serves two purposes in this manner; one, to have enlightened conversations with professionals about pressing issues affecting your industry or profession and two, to enhance your online presence. If there is one thing that majority of job seekers are lacking in, it’s their online presence. Don’t be afraid to comment on a few articles and contribute to a few discussions. You never know if your future boss is reading that same article.
- Google Hangout – What is this? Well, if you use Gmail or Google+, then you have access to it. Google Hangout gives you the ability to start an online video chat group. Everyday there are thousands of hangouts going on where people come together and discuss important topics to them. There are a multitude of Google Hangouts that are related to job searching. Not only will this help you learn some new tricks that other people are using, it will also help you brush up on some basic interviewing skills. Since the hangout is a video chat, it will require you to look professional and sound intelligent. Another great tool that could be used to enhance your job search.
I hope that you use these simple and effective ways to boost your job searching morale. It can be tough, but with the right mindset, you can accomplish it!
