No surprise for me in this result: There’s nothing more frustrating to dedicate a huge amount of energy to a critical project and to see little result if not any at all.
Taking the risk to create frustration to the ones of you who are already advanced in the job search process, I would like to take the time to start by the beginning (we talk here about a systematic approach and this is what we will deploy):
“I have not sent any application yet”
I hear the reaction (yes yes I do!): “No wonder he/she doesn’t have a job if he/she has not applied yet)”
Well, it’s is not this simple: I hear many people, telling me how frustrated they are about not working since they have relocated to Switzerland and who have not sent one single application letter.
Let’s go back to our root cause analysis chart and try to find the root cause for not having applied:
Understanding what prevents you from starting your job search project is of course not sufficient but is already a big step forward towards taking corrective action.
If you are in one of the situations highlighted by the root cause chart and need some help to find out what could be a corrective action, please post your comment here below.
