A job search is a tiring and stressful task, it can be long and frustrating. It’s important, when the opportunity presents itself, to step back from it and give yourself a short break. One of the most important things you can do during a job search is remember to take time for your most important asset, yourself. What better time to recharge and re-energize yourself than this time of year? Back away from the stress of the search and give yourself permission to just relax. Enjoy and be thankful for what you have; family, great food and all the sports you could possibly want. When the time comes to get back into the search you can hit the ground running, hopefully with a renewed focus and energy. Sometimes the best way to move forward is to just stand still.
Come to think of it, taking a break to re-energize yourself is good advice whether you are searching for a job or not. Have a great holiday!
