Avoid negativity - Take a break from negative news and media. Even though the job market is tight, many companies are still hiring.

Reconnect with family, friends and former business associates, they may know of possible opportunities.

Re-visit your skills, talents and abilities. Perhaps you have skills you've forgotten or that can be applied in a different way or field than you thought possible.

Pay attention to how you are spending your time--it's your most valuable asset! Be proactive in your job search everyday.

Get support if you need it - you don't have to go it alone!

Create consistent self-care habits that will help you to stay healthy and positive. Eat well, exercise, take walks, pray, meditate, get plenty of sleep and avoid excess caffeine and alcohol.

Stay connected to others, be in community. Connect with others on Beliefnet who are also going through tough times and can offer you support.

Keep your eyes and ears open - opportunities can present themselves in unexpected ways and places.

Don't isolate yourself - get out of the house everyday and explore the job options in your own community.

Pray for God's guidance and support to help you find your perfect job.
