Jobseekers

Are you searching for a job? Or already working but need some advice on childcare or employment rights? This section offers a wide variety of news, views, guides and stories about subjects including returning to work, flexible working, maternity & parental leave, childcare, career advice and employment rights.

Job searching is an intense process where you can experience a wide range of feelings, from frustration to excitement, and disappointment or hope.

A few tips to help maintain a positive mindset

Create a routine

Bt creating a clear structure will make you feel like you have some control, keeps your motivation up and helps you maintain a positive mindset. Don’t constantly check the job boards throughout the day.

Do this at a set time each day as part of your routine. By adopting a job searching routine this will help you recognise your small wins each day. So knowing you are able to accomplish the goals you set for yourself contributes to achieving a healthier mindset.

Be organised

The more organised you are the less overwhelmed you will feel. Break each task down into small sections so it is a less daunting prospect. Write down everything you apply for so you have all the details to hand should you receive a phone call or email from the employer.

Take regular breaks

It can be tempting to arrange as many interviews as possible but pace yourself or you will burn out. If you have an interview one day make sure the following day you take it easy. Catch up with your emails and make a plan for the next day.

Talk about it

If you are feeling a bit low make sure you surround yourself with positive friends and family. Don’t bottle up your feelings as this can trigger more stress that will continue to bring you down.

Identify your triggers

Try and work out what your emotional triggers are. If you do get emotional these triggers can lower your levels of motivation and jeopardise how your job search or how you perform at your next interview.
