goals for your job search
- Find it hard to get started.
- Find it difficult to keep going.

- Lose job search motivation.
- End up with a job you don’t want.

Based on my experience, I believe the most important part of setting goals in the job search is getting started. The first two letters of the word goal are g-o, which of course spells go!
