#057 A Daily Schedule for Job Seekers

Looking for a new job as a nurse practitioner can feel like a full time job in itself. 

Job searching can require a heavy amount of effort, time and focus, so it’s easy to see why some people might put it off. What I see most people do when they’re seeking a new role is that NP’s get wrapped up in the thinking and not the actual doing. 

So today, I’m sharing my recommendations for what you should be doing on a regular basis when you’re searching for a job so that you have a clear, focused plan that permits you to take results-oriented action.

I’ve broken it down into specific NP job search and networking activities, and how much time you should allot so that you can maximize your efficiency without your job search taking over your life.

On today’s episode, I share:

  • Job-seeking action steps that you can take on a regular basis
  • An easy-to-stick to schedule for your job search activities (that won’t conflict with your personal life or relationships)
  • Time blocking for job searching – Exactly how much time to spend on applications, following up and networking
  • How to network (and why it’s important)
  • The “untapped market” for NPs and
