Lining up the dots. Are you applying for jobs with great similarity to what you have done in the past, meaning the same constituency, the same general mission, funders and culture?
Plans B and C. If following your old organizational thread is not working, think seriously about plan b or c. Look at your transferrable skills and think about where they can be directed. Look for organizations with missions and values that match yours. Look honestly at your strengths and think about what you can pitch and pitch well.
Practice your pitch. Look at your job collateral. Most everyone needs to work on pitching and job search materials. Getting in front of your friends or former coworkers is a great way to polish your pitch. You’ll get feedback about what lands and insights about how to be more effective.
Self-care. Make sure that you are taking time out- for exercise, fresh air, good food and kind interactions. It is important to know you are good and maintain real work-life balance.
