U.S. News & World Report has a great column on
8 Job Search Lessons You Can Learn from the Super Bowl

Here are a few more tips for the millions of talented executives
considering a job change or even a career change: 

  • Keep up your interview skills.  If you’re like most
    people, these skills may have slipped over the years.  Seek
    opportunities to present yourself and talk about your achievements,
    so you’ll be better prepared when an interview comes your way.
  • Be patient.  In this era of flattening hierarchies and
    cross-collaboration, even leading employers have slowed their
    search processes, and that means delays for candidates. 
  • Dance.  Or sing.  Or bowl.  Or do any other one
    thing that brings joy to your day.  Having a happier life will
    help your job search.
  • Most important, don’t let fear hold you back.  As Lara
    Galinsky writes in the HBR Blog Network, “fear
    means go
    .”  The bottom line: you can freeze with fear and
    turn your fate over to circumstance.  Or you can take control
    where possible, and make the most of every opportunity to energize
    your career. 

Good luck!
