It should. It’s the easy, acceptable way to do a job search.
I’ve challenged you to do a job board fast during the month of July. Don’t worry, we are not going to put a dent in the job board industry. I’m not concerned about them. I’m concerned about the effectiveness of your job search!
But not pushing the easy button (aka, using job boards) can be SCARY!
You know what else is SCARY? Being on the top of a mountain during a massive lightening storm, protected only by your camping tent. Dawn Rasmussen did that last weekend, and she was scared out of her mind. She writes: “It was one of the single most terrifying experiences I’ve ever had.”
You know what else is SCARY? Seeing a huge black bear, only 50 feet away, on your trail. Yup. Dawn did that, too, same campout.
You know what else is SCARY? For a self-admitted klutz, to do something that might cause them to fall… which is exactly what Dawn did, on the same campout.
And guess what – she lived through it, and she’s OKAY!! Read her post here: Do Something That Scares You… It Will Change Your Perspective
You too can live through a job board fast.
The purpose of the fast IS NOT to free up time to do your honey-do list. It’s actually to give you the time to do other, more effective things.
So I ask you, what have you done this month, so far, in your job board fast?
In tomorrow’s post I’m going to paraphrase quote from a career counselor at a university – it was a profound, and totally fits into this fast 🙂
