Job Search Paralysis
June 30, 2011
Ever wonder if perhaps your extended job search is causing you to become ineffective at finding work? It’s called, “Job Search Paralysis” and it’s very real. Given today’s extended unemployment numbers (9.1% unemployment, 25M out of work, 45% out of work 6+ months, etc.), it’s easy to see why the number of people with Job Search Paralysis is increasing. Which leads to an important question: How do I know if I have it? In the following video, J.T. O’Donnell explains the tell-tale signs of Job Search Paralysis which include:
- Spending less than 15 hours/week on your job search.
- Limiting your job search to activities that don’t involve connecting with people face-to-face.
- Having a "crisis of confidence" about your ability to find a job.
