Your Job Search Schedule
Congratulations. You have just accepted a full-time job. Full-time job search that is. Do not conduct your job search with anything less than a full-time effort. Without full-time commitment, you increase the amount of time you will be without work--which decreases your attractiveness in the job market.
Following is a sample work schedule:
7:30 a.m. - Early morning callbacks to contacts you were unable to reach the previous day.
8:30 a.m. - Off to the library or placement office to do further research and write follow-up letters from the day before.
12:30 p.m. - Hit the telephone all afternoon. Do not stop until you have contacted every potential employer and every potential contact.
4:30 p.m. - Send same day follow-up letters to the most promising contacts of the day.
5:30 p.m. - One last attempt to reach all those unable to be reached during the day.
In looking at the above, there is one major activity missing: interviewing. When you start receiving interviews, you will know that your new job is within reach.Have Questions? Contact the Career Services Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
