Work Search Tips Tuesday: Have You Ever Suffered from Job Crush?


 Have you ever had a “job crush?”  No, not a romantic crush on a co-worker, but the kind of crush job seekers feel when they have their heart set on a highly desired position which leads them to not having the motivation to look for other work .  J.T O’Donnell, founder of Careerealism.com and author of the e-book “Careerealism:  The Smart Approach to a Satisfying Career,” has some advice on how to deal with the heartache of job crush.  Below are a few of her stellar tips: 


  • Don’t assume.  Never assume you got the job because the interview went well or you are included in the top ten of the final hiring process.  Never stop looking even if you feel you have the job hands down – wait for the final say so whether you definitely have the job or not.     


  • Bucket List.  Do you have a bucket list of things you want to do or places you want to go?  Apply this to your job search as well.  Make a list of 10 places you would like to apply for work.  A bucket list helps job seekers have a helpful list to refer to when looking for work as well as helping them put their serious job crush into perspective. 


  • My Buddy.  Find a fellow job hunter and ask them if they would help you be accountable for your career search.  Help each other keep track of job applications, interviews, and give each other support where needed.    


        It’s not the end of the world if you do not land a job with your dream company, but it can be disappointing.  There are many job opportunities for pharmacy technicians in the healthcare industry, making the career choice a very popular one among those wishing to enter the business of pharmacy.  So, don’t give up, just broaden your search, and the right technician job may be around the corner!
