Three times a week job workout


You need to keep those job hunting muscles strong.

Gannett’s Andrea Kay writes about this—even if you are working, you need to have an organized networking and job workout plan.

Don’t see it as some terrible time-suck. Blow it over fast! Three times a week would probably do it.

Create a “career workout.”

Ten minutes a day on social media.

Ten minutes a day of online research. Create “Google Alerts” for mentions of companies you like.

Five minutes a day of sending quick thank you emails to people you talk to—or send a clipping or speech or something of interest to a person.

Just focus—and do.
