It is better to be strategic and narrow your search than to throw spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks. Eventually, the spaghetti falls off and hits the floor anyway.
Get specific in your career plans and keep your search targeted. If you find it’s not working, then simply change your focus. It may feel like you’re starting over, but you’re doing so with a much stronger foundation than if you were to keep doing the same thing over and getting the same results. There’s only so much spaghetti you can throw. Crazy, right?
There’s a lot to learn about yourself during a job search. Embrace the lesson and build from it.
