Hunt Your Prey

Job hunting is a state of mind that goes beyond applying for jobs.

We call this thing The Daily Job Hunt for a reason. It’s daily because the mindset applies to every day. You can’t relegate it to just the weekends if you want success. It’s called a hunt because you’re not waiting for luck to fall into your lap. You are the initiator of the action. You’re targeting specific prey, learning their habits, and sending your best shot right to the target.

Live every day like you’re on the hunt. If not for jobs then for opportunity and adventure.

How to Use Google to Find Jobs

Google is a tool. Use it with intention to zero in on job opportunities. See this short post on how to do an advanced search on Google.

“Google lets you search specific sites’ public content simply by typing SEARCH TERM. This is often a better way to find content or profiles than the site’s own search function, since Google has arguably the best search algorithms known to humankind.”

Quote of the Day

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. That surrender, even the smallest act of giving up, stays with me. So when I feel like quitting, I ask myself, which would I rather live with?”
