Budgeting Time for Your Job Search

 

How much time should you budget for a job search? Experts I believe in say a good rule of thumb is 3-6 months. That sounds like a lot of time to find a job, and, for many people who have bills, it is too long. What I recommend for those people is a two stage job search. First find a temporary or part-time job to provide income. That process can take a month or two, and it can involve doing the type of work you do not want to do. However, that job will be a bridge to the job you want. The second step is to manage your time so you can look for work while you are working. People with a job face the same dilemma. It is never easy to find a job. To be successful in finding the job you want, you need to put in the effort, focus, and time that is need to reach your goal.

Have a happy 4th of July.
