The Job Hunting Podcast Episode 154

Many professionals have not looked for a new job in many years. They are either a) in the workforce but have worked for the same organization for a long time, or b) have been on a career break for some time and have not looked for work for over a year. Job hunting and returning to work after a long break can be challenging. In this episode, I provide some out-of-the-box advice to make this process less stressful and, hopefully, more fun.

Here is my unusual advice you will not find anywhere else on how to job-hunt and go back to work after a long break:

  1. Watch an episode of Grand Designs (04:16)
  2. Seek comfort & happiness (08:06)
  3. Don't go into job-hunting cold turkey (12:00)
