    Motivation to job search

    Okay, any boosts welcome, i i have a few things to apply for and a cover letter written for one. I always let covers sit for a day, then i re read the ad, then edit and apply.

    Feeling the need for a quick nap and then jumping in, job seeking is quite mentally hard

    Sending you positive vibes.

    Make a list of all your strengths and find examples of using them and review several times a day if necessary to make it second nature to believe in your worth and add to your self-confidence.

    Zoe, if you think you might up to relocating, there are a lot of teacher jobs in Florida right now; I get notifications of job openings every day, but can't persuade my husband to move to Florida. I posted my resume on line-- tis the season.

    There is a job fair near Orlando coming up July 19, for example.

    I'm checking Indeed at least twice a week and have been applying to one or two a week as well. So far none of the offers beats what I have so I've declined everything to date...but there is always a chance.

    "Consider it a job to get a job" is what we've all heard over the years so everywhere you go or whoever you meet with, mention it. You never know what'll open up.
