Don’t Overthink the Job Hunt

People who are sharp enough to stop and think about the job hunt instead of just plodding along like the masses are often also people who can think too much.

Think clearly, act concisely.

That’s a good formula for accomplishing most important goals – especially those that take multiple efforts and have a lot of unknowns. Like finding a job.

The first thing you have to do is stop and think. Don’t just mindlessly ship out applications and resumes. Think about roles and companies that interest you and what you can send them to really get their attention.

Then stop thinking!

Don’t overthink it

People who are sharp enough to stop and think about the job hunt instead of just plodding along like the masses are often also people who can think too much. Don’t overthink!

Don’t make it too complicated. Pick a few good targets. Make them something hard to ignore (we love video pitches). Send it. Follow up.

That’s it. It doesn’t need to be perfect. Just deliberate, genuine, and persistent.
