A Daily Plan for the Unemployed


Robby

I know you’re unemployed, and it can be hard to know what to do with your day. Without a boss or an office to go to, it can be tough to have any structure.

So here’s what you should do if you’re unemployed:

1) Get up, get dressed for work and go to a coffeeshop at 8AM. If you have a fellow jobseeker, make an appointment to meet them at 8AM sharp. You need to practice being professional, and dressing and meeting is a way to do this.

2) For 30 minutes, mutually review your progress on job seeking the previous day.

3) All morning, target companies that are hiring or expanding. You can find these companies by browsing the web, reading the paper. Keep lists of each company and try to identify people you know at the company.

4) In the afternoon, call people at these companies who you know and ask them if you can visit them in their office. It’s always great to visit people at their offices, even if only for 15 minutes, because they can introduce you to other folks that are also there. (If you meet them for coffee or lunch, this won’t happen.)

5) Write hand-written cards and letters to people you met with previously or people you read about in the paper. Be sure and include a way to follow up.

6) Finish the day with at least one online application. That way it’s more likely to show up in their inbox in the morning.

Follow this plan every day and you’re sure to start to have success with your job seeking process. Remember that successful candidates practice what it’s like to be at work. Having a routine and following it closely is working. Keep this in mind as you execute your job search!
