If you’re feeling stuck in a rut in your job, what can you do to dig yourself out? This is a feeling that doesn’t have to be permanent. You may find that a change of attitude or scenery can be all you need to improve your mood and make you remember why you like what you do. Sometimes the most important thing you can do to shake things up is to meet new people. You never know where a new opportunity can come from.
Did you know that volunteering has a lot of physical and mental health benefits? Not only do you feel good about giving back to your community, but you also give yourself a mental boost of energy. And depending on the work, you can get a pretty great workout even if you don’t exercise regularly. This will help your mood and your job search.
Volunteering can take a lot of forms. It’s a great way to network and find your next job. When you volunteer, you are likely to meet others in your community. Connect with them and let them know you’re in the market for a new job. You never know where your next opportunity will come from.
Take a Class
Another way to meet new people is to take a class. Most importantly, take a class in something that might benefit your career in the long term. For example, if you’ve been working primarily as an administrative assistant but believe some financial classes could help you, start there.
Taking classes is a great thing to do if you’re looking for the next step on your current career ladder or if you are thinking about changing careers altogether. But don’t be afraid to talk to your instructor or other students in your class about your job search.
Work with a Staffing Agency
If you feel like you’re not getting enough hits on your resume or you’re not finding enough open positions, set up a time to talk with a staffing agency about how they can help you. A recruiter can talk to you about your interests and skills and help match you to an open position.
There are other benefits of working with a staffing agency as well. You can take short term jobs to help you earn extra money while you’re still looking for a full-time position. And you can try out a job on a temp-to-hire basis to make sure it’s a good fit for you.
