How to make every second count!

By: Rachel Isaac

Generally, when we're looking for a job, words like 'fun' don't come to mind. However, with some simple tips and tricks (many taking less than one minute) you can completely revitalize and re-energize your job search and turn looking for a job into something dare I say... fun! It takes 27 seconds to make a first impression. Let potential employers get the best impression of you by showing up to the interview 15-20 minutes early, armed and ready with plenty of copies of your resume and having done your homework on the company (employers love seeing candidates who are passionate and excited about themselves and the work they do!) . The power of positive thinking can never be underestimated especially when looking for a job. When you make a conscientious decision that each day will be a good one, productive and a step closer to finding the job you are looking WILL be. Happiness and positivity are contagious! During your search, try to surround yourself with people and outside influences that will help you to achieve your goals.

Reward yourself on a daily or weekly basis for your efforts.
A half hour walk costs nothing and truly works wonders for boosting your spirits. Volunteer work is another great way to spend even a couple of hours a week and can help in the long run for building your resume
and potentially leading to full time employment.
