1- The job searching you have been doing, perhaps without you are recognizing it, have become repetitive and uninspired. The experience of disappointment and frustrations of never receiving positive response may have led to your conclusion, in your own mind, of the pointlessness of your efforts. Taking a new direction can open up your job search tunnel. Instead of beating your head against the wall and revisiting every technique and lead you’ve tried before, moving into a different environment may give you a new sense of purpose and appreciation of your own prospective. That is when the positive effects of forced change can become a new source of pleasure and satisfaction
2- Try to analyze your interests and preferences and identify things you would like to do which have not been utilized by your prior jobs. You may now remember your previous job with sentimental affection, but undoubtedly there were times that you wished you could quit. Any single job position only taps into a small part of your potential and talents. Now can you think of an industry or a particular job title that might allow you to move in a new direction? Think about, and complete some initial research on, jobs in new industries that you might be able to do. You may not have directly related experience but there are common subjects that fill every kind of work: the ability to connect, to work as part of a team, ability to learn fast, to be attentive, and to be organized. If you pick an area of personal interest, your passion and eagerness will clearly and naturally transpire and that is something all employers seek
3- Being forced to make a change allows you to develop other domains of your personal character. Use social media to build and define your online presence. More employers are starting to factor in candidates’ public social profiles on the most popular sites, which include Facebook and Twitter. Update your privacy settings to ensure that any questionable images, updates and links are not visible to people outside of your network. Do not forget to change visibility settings for photos that have been posted by your friends
