If you’re not landing the job of your dreams, maybe you need a new dream. That is the subject of a blog post on Businessweek by Roxanne Hori, associate dean of corporate partnerships at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
“Graduates who are still in job-search mode often limit themselves by narrowly defining their job search—and thus put more pressure on themselves,” she writes. “You may need to map out a different strategy and broaden some of your criteria without giving up on your longer-term goals.”
If you are fixed on a certain job, city or company, your options will be severely limited. If you haven’t landed a job yet, hopefully you’ve figured that out already.
Hori suggests taking time out of your job search to work with a career coach, or reach out to your MBA’s career services center, which are usually open all summer long “contrary to popular belief.”
