A job or occupation is the role of a person in society. More precisely, a job is an activity, often regular and carried out in exchange for a payment (“to live”). Many people have multiple jobs (eg, parent, housewife, and employee). A person can start a job by becoming an employee, volunteering, starting a business or becoming a parent. The duration of a job can range from temporary (eg, odd hourly jobs) to a lifetime (eg, judges).
An activity that requires the mental or physical effort of a person is a job (as in “a day’s work”). If a person is trained for a certain type of job, they may have a profession. Typically, a job would be a subset of someone’s career. Both may differ in that one usually withdraws from their career as opposed to resigning or terminating a job.

Find a hidden vacation. Many jobs can be landed before being advertised if you can access them quickly. Look into internal recruitment and look for word of mouth tips as good ways to get your foot in the door early.
Attract employers. Rather than looking for jobs, consider bringing in potential employers. Post your resume online and you could save a lot of time and effort looking for a job.
Get Networking Many people find jobs from people they know rather than traditional means such as job ads. Talk to your family, friends and others you know about where the work might be available.
Stay positive. We all have some setbacks when we look for work. Do not take it personally if you are rejected or do not even get an answer because it’s probably not because of everything you’ve done wrong.
Target companies. Look at organizations that could make a good employer and focus on them. This may mean that you only look at the big employers in your area or it might mean that you are looking at one area, but nationally.

Stay motivated. Create a vision chart if you need to read inspirational quotes on your morning commute. Do what you need to continue. Professionals cross the valley to reach their mountain peak – you are no exception. When things get tough, do not give in under pressure. Use your struggles as an opportunity to learn and grow professionally. Try not to complain. This will only reduce your morale and that of other members of your team.
