Let’s talk about the job application hustle.
Scouring for a job can sometimes feel like signing up for a crash course in patience.
You're in it for the long haul - investing time, energy, and a sprinkle of eye-rolling 👀
That’s why this week we’re giving you 4 tips to dial down the job application frustration.
Let’s get into it!
You may start off strong, but over time the process can start to take a toll on you.
Especially if you're repeating the same application answers over and over again.
So instead, we'd recommend you try out the Pomodoro Technique.
This is how it works:
This will help you keep your job application productivity up, without burning out.
Ever thought about teaming up with your partner or a good buddy to speed up your job search?
Yep, you read that right – it's tag team time!
Split tasks like company research, networking, and tailoring your resume to cut down on time.
You’ll also be able to send off way more applications that you could on your own.
It's like doubling your job-hunting success! 🚀👯♂️
So recruit your partner or BFF, and let the job-search adventure begin! 🌟🕵️♂️
Somewhere along the way, you might stumble upon a job posting that's a bit like a digital labyrinth.
If you ever come across a job application that feels like it never ends, run the other way.
They might steer you toward a path where you're asked to create an account and start on a journey that’s on par with scaling a skyscraper.
You're much better off applying to jobs that don't make you go through tedious processes like that.
On average, applying to multiple short applications increases your chances of getting an interview compared to applying to a single lengthy one.
There’s nothing wrong with using a bit of AI technology to speed up the job search process.
You can use a tool like AutoApplyAI that applies to 20+ jobs for you within a few clicks.
Even if a job application throws personal questions at you, this tool can write custom answers.
Your inbox will be flooded with “Thank you” emails in no time!

Especially in the business world where mergers and acquisitions take on high risk and high reward.
