We often undertake a job search just when we're feeling at our lowest: when we've been fired or laid off; when we've had a life-changing event such as a move, a death, or a divorce that's rocked our world; or when we've buckled under the weight of the very last straw in our current job situation. But even in more pleasant circumstances, such as graduation or when we're choosing to look for a new career path without an unpleasant catalyst, it can be hard to stay positive throughout a job search. Let's face it: finding a job is work. And sometimes the payoff for all of our effort seems too far-off and uncertain to seem worth it.
