Looking for a new role can be extremely challenging in the best of times, but adding a global pandemic and economic uncertainty into the mix can make it all feel overwhelming. 

 

Taking the time to research and apply for roles can consume a lot of time and energy, so when dealing with rejections, hard knockbacks or no response at all, it can be soul destroying. 

 

Having been in the recruitment industry for over a decade, we’ve helped support thousands of candidates during the job search process but 2020 has certainly been the toughest. That is why we wanted to share our knowledge and resources to put together some top tips for maintaining resilience during a long job search process. 

 

Set yourself targets 

Establishing a routine can help focus your search efforts and make you feel more productive. It doesn’t have to be the traditional structure of 9-5 but setting up a schedule for researching and networking can make the process much easier. 

 

Don’t forget to breathe 

Yes, we just said set up a routine, but don’t be too hard on yourself. Don’t forget to give yourself the odd duvet day or enjoy activities that take your mind off job hunting. 

 

Connect with other people 

Social media is a great tool for connecting with others in a similar situation or with industry. During tough times it's nice to know you aren’t the only one going through this situation, plus you never know what opportunities might come from connecting with the right person. 

 

Just be yourself 

When reaching out to potential employers, remember that it’s ok to be yourself and show vulnerability as it helps build a relationship from the very beginning of the process. 

 

Get the basics right

Taking the time to research a role and company before an interview can really help with boosting confidence before and during an interview. Ensuring you’ve tailored your CV for the specific role and industry, as well as doing a thorough spellcheck can really improve your changes. It sounds simple but you’ll be surprised how many rush this part. If you’re confident you’ve done all you can at the end of the process and still don’t secure the role, at least you know it was purely the wrong fit.
