phase one of the job hunt:
spend hours looking through job listings identifying your 'ideal job'. having found FOUR jobs you MIGHT consider working then spend the next week composing application letters and tweaking resume.
phase two of the job hunt:
go back to job listings and be a little more realistic about the jobs you are suitable for. 'project manager'? try instead 'project assistant'. 'curator'? try instead 'unpaid intern who gets to fetch coffee for the curator'.
phase three of job hunt:
bulk applications. apply for anything and everything you can.
phase four of the job hunt:
depression/acceptance. the best and worst part of job hunting; while emotionally you hit an all time low, at the same time you really start to make the most of the unemployed lifestyle and enjoy those midday sleep-ins and afternoon lattes in the park. that is until and money runs out...
i'm currently only in phase one. however, i've done this so many times before i know where i'm going...
