Searching for a job is a kind of game of chance. You never know when the moment will come when someone reads your CV and just wants you. Often, however, waiting for an invitation to an interview is long and tedious. So it's important to stay calm and stay positive about your dream job.

An optimistic approach will give you energy and motivation if you try a little. Here are some tips to stay stoic and avoid frustration while looking for a job.

Change your approach

Stamina and dedication are the keys to getting a job, but becoming obsessed is not the best idea. Putting all your energy and enthusiasm into your job search will make you burn out quickly. Instead, spend some time on the little things you enjoy. It can be watching your favorite movie, going out with a friend, cooking something sweet - it's important that it allows you to breathe and relax even for a moment. After a moment of mental or physical rest, you will be ready to return to action with a fresh mind - notes Małgorzata Majewska, an expert of

Make a list of the things you are grateful for

A long job search can certainly put you off. However, don't let your mood spoil yourself. To keep a positive attitude, make a list of the things you are grateful for. Start with the obvious: Your family, friends, health, home - these are the basic things you can be grateful for. However, don't be afraid to expand your list - encourages Małgorzata Majewska, an expert of The more you write, the better you will feel and you will see how many things you can be thankful for and that make your day just better.

Know that you are not alone

Unfortunately, struggling with unemployment is a common problem, but knowing that you are not alone in this can help. Try to talk to someone who has been in the same situation. Maybe you will get some valuable advice, some sympathy, and certainly a lot of support. It can be motivating and comforting to know that in a situation like you there have already been a lot of people and they have emerged stronger, wiser than they were before. Let others' success be your motivation.

Find other ways to secure your income

Financial troubles are the main problem related to the lack of work. This can be depressing and even more stressful. So try to use every opportunity you have to earn some money. Think about a garden sale, consider changing the car or apartment to a smaller one, or offer your neighbor to help with household chores. Take into account that you can advertise yourself and your skills for free on the Internet and look for ads offering all kinds of odd jobs there.

Keep doing something

If you've been used to work, the sudden enormous amount of free time can be embarrassing for you. But don't waste it. It is important that you are constantly doing something, being active, constantly planning something. Having too much free time to think can make you nervous and only get you down. Make a list of goals for each day. Of course, you need to include some time for your job search in this day plan, but also leave some space on your list for your own affairs. Try physical activity, go out of the house - even for a short walk to sit on a park bench, meet your loved ones, try new activities, take advantage of free courses and training or become a volunteer - all this will make your every day a goal and a certain direction given to it - sums up Małgorzata Majewska, expert of

Being out of work for a long time can make you feel worthless and useless. However, remember that this is a temporary condition. Follow all of the above recommendations and this period will be easier to survive and more fruitful in new experiences and experiences.
