Albert Einstein said that insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results. I remind myself of this when I get in a rut. Or, anytime I don't get the results I want. If your job search isn't going as well as you'd like, perhaps it's time to change up your routine. I realize that sounds simple, but it can be a challenge.
A change of scenery might re-invigorate your search. Ask yourself, with every job search action you take, "Have I done this before?". If you have, don't do it. No matter how successful you think it will be this time.
That's the Einstein Test. Are you doing the same thing, over and over again, expecting the results to be different?
We are all, at some level, creatures of habit. You go to the same websites and job boards, maybe even from the same spot at the same coffee shop while drinking the same iced white mocha.
Try something different today, something you've never done.
