The Job of the Job Search and Time Management
by Danielle Gruen, LivingCareers.net
An active job search is quite different from a passive job search. Which one are you really doing? Which one is your life requiring of your NOW? Be truthful with yourself…Living Careers is not here to judge.
If you are not sure the difference, then we will start here with an explanation to clarify some of this. A passive job search is one where a person is searching for jobs only using one medium; ie: the newspaper and no others. It can also be a job search where one finds her/himself searching for hours online for open positions but in the end of the week only applies for one. It can also be defined by the job seeker who speaks generally of his/her job search to friends/family/colleagues face-to-face or even via email, with little specifics giving life to what is being sought after. Some of you may have received or even sent such a mass email yourself.
