For many job-seek-
ers, searching for a
new job is a stressful
experience. The end
result, though, is usu-
ally a positive one in
which the job-seeker is
rewarded for his or her
with a better job -- a job
that has more prestige,
higher pay, and per-
haps with a better
But when you have to
conduct a job-search in a
weak job market, the
stress level increases dra-
matically -- especially if
you are currently unem-
ployed, expect to be let
go from your current
employer, or work in an
industry or profession
that has seen widespread
To make matters worse,
it's hard not to get anx-
ious and depressed from
the daily economic and
job news we receive. Just
about every day we hear
about another company
announcing layoffs or
some economist predict-
ing more months of job
losses and a sharp
increase in the unemploy-
ment rate... leading many
into the Job Market Blues.
So, when all this bad
news abounds and adds
to the stress you already
feel in trying to find a new
job, how do you keep your
focus and stay upbeat?
What's the remedy?
Granted, it can be diffi-
cult, but if you follow the
five strategies in this arti-
cle, you should be well on
your way to overcoming
the stress and anxiety and

1. Keep a positive
focus. In a weak job
market, employers that
are actually hiring
workers have a much
greater selection of
and will quickly elim-
inate any job-seekers
who appear desperate
or too negative.
Your goal, even if you
are scrambling to pay
your mortgage and put
food on the table, is to
appear outwardly pos-
itive. Employers seek
job candidates who are
confident and specific
about the jobs they
seek and the impact
they can make in those

job in your profession, and while that is not the
ideal scenario, doing so will allow you to pay your
bills, gain some renewed confidence, and give you
an emotional boost that will help in your job inter-
If you were downsized or fired, you face some addi-
tional challenges of convincing yourself that you
are still a good job prospect.
When the bad news is overwhelming or you are
feeling angry and frustrated, try and find a way to
step outside the bubble. Take a few hours to get
away from all the bad news -- do something enjoyable
like going to the park or beach or down to the river
to fish. Doing so will not make all the bad news
disappear but will give you a mental break you need
to face the next challenges.
2. Surround yourself with support. Do not suffer
through a bad time alone. Seek out the emotional
support of family and friends. Sometimes just talking
out about our fears and the stress we are experiencing
makes us feel better.
Whatever you do, don't hide your problems from
the people closest to you. There is no shame in
being downsized or in struggling to find new employ-
ment. The comfort you can receive from a spouse,
significant other, parent, or friend can be enough
to give you the emotional boost you need to rein-
vigorate your job-search.
The other benefit from seeking the support of others
is that the more people in your network of contacts
that know you are seeking a job, the more likely
you will uncover more job leads that you may never
have found if people around you did not know you
were seeking a new position.
While using your existing network for support is
a good start, consider taking additional steps to
expanding your network. Join one or more com-
munity or professional organizations. An even better
idea? Join together with other job-seekers in forming
a job club, which has then dual benefits of offering
support and potential job leads.
3. Have long-term focus, but short-term goals.
The most successful job-seekers have a long-term
career strategy developed with smaller short-term
goals to assist them in achieving that long-term goal.
Your most basic goal may be to simply find a new
job in your field, but even in this job market, that
could be more long-term. Instead of dwelling too
much on getting the job, put more emphasis on the
process of finding the job.
In other words, create daily job-hunting goals for
yourself. Make it a goal to accomplish several things
each day, such as tracking down job leads, applying
for jobs, making new network contacts, following up
job leads, going on job interviews.
One final tip. It's a bit of a cliche, but the best way
to really focus on finding a new job is to treat the
job-search like a job in itself. Invest as much time,
energy, and commitment to finding a new job as you
do at your job. The more things you can do today
to find a new job will result in more job opportu-
nities -- maybe not tomorrow or even next month,
but the rewards will come to you.
4.Remember that everything counts. Of course,
everything counts -- but let's use a marketing example
to demonstrate that when you are seeking a new job
you are basically marketing yourself to prospective
