Life can be a little difficult to navigate when you do not have any clear goals or plans in mind. That is why timeframes should always be employed when you wish to achieve something. Open ended commitment never works out, because they lack clear and obvious focus which is seldom the key to achieving noticeable results. That is why it is so helpful to set a deadline for your job search.

Now, some may wonder about the value of setting an end date on a job search. After all, you cannot opt to never seek employment ever again! So, how can one set an end date for the search for employment? Well, you really should not focus on looking exclusively at a job search end date from the equally open perspective of a perpetual job search. Instead, you need to lay down parameters for a specific job search and then stick to them. This way, you can modify and alter your career search as needed. In other words, you will want to have an end date in mind for the tactics you employ and the type of job you are looking for.

The reason for this is fairly self-evident. If you are not getting results from a particular methodology you will want to alter it. When you have not achieved clear and definitive results after a certain specified time frame, it becomes necessary to make changes. Really, would you want to continue receiving "non results" forever? If you are like most people, you will certainly make adjustments needed to change your job search venture. This would be more logical approach.



For example, let's say you are employing the classic method of applying to jobs through classified ads. You can apply through those ads that are available online and in print mediums. This would constitute a high volume of jobs in terms of the sheer number of jobs posted in such a manner. In order to maximize efficiency, you will need to send out a bare minimum number of applications per day for at least a 60 day period. 60 days should be enough to properly land at least one interview for employment. Now, if the 60 days go by and you do not have any decent career prospects, it is probably necessary to give up this method of job searching and try something completely new. This way, you will no longer have to repeat failed methods that are clearly not workable. You want to succeed in your job search. You do not want to repeat failures!

Do not, however, give up on your job search completely. Always look for new ways to apply for jobs. Be innovative when needed and explore all available options. Be sure to apply the same goal method so as to keep a logical timeframe on the search you perform. This way, you can stay focused on the approach you take. This, in turn, increases the odds of successfully landing a job.

An open ended approach to a job search is never a wise idea as the need for clear and definitive goals and end dates should always be adhered to. Focus is always a positive attribute to possess and applying to the end date for a job search is almost always universally considered a wise move.
