Q: I’ve heard it said that you should treat looking for a job as a full time job. In that I am already working full time, is my job search doomed?
A: Some people do say that a job search is a 24/7 endeavor, but I think it’s not possible, even if someone has the time–or wise–to push so hard at a search. People who are already working at a full time job, like you are, find new jobs all the time…and those with all the time to search need to find other outlets and pace themselves while they look.
Keep your day job but put some momentum under the search. Your time will come.
