1. Stop Sending Out Resumes!
“I don’t even let my clients look online for jobs,” says Myers. Why? The results, more often than not, are negative. “Getting no responses can be depressing,” Myers adds. Your move: Face-to-face introductions—it’s hard to be ignored in person. Start with your buddy who’s had it together since the womb. Tell him you’re exploring new opportunities and ask if he can help.

2. Spend Your Time Wisely

Hang around with people who are going places, take advantage of career coaches, or

websites like www.CareerPotential.com. Pencil in webinars, seminars, and speaking events. The more you learn, the more opportunities you’ll be open to. “Don’t try to do it by yourself—the job search can be isolating. You can feel like you’re the only person not headed to work Monday morning.”

3. Hit the Gym
Interviewers want to see urgency and energy—so don’t let not having a job suck the vitality out of your life. Maintain your energy in the gym. It’ll show throughout your life, Myers adds. It doesn’t have to take all day either—arecent study in the Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology found that just 15 minutes of exercise boosts feelings of happiness and pride.

4. Tune Out the News
Let’s be real: drowning in reports on the economy and the unemployment rate isn’t helping your mood. “When I’m working with clients, I talk to them about carefully monitoring what they allow into their eyes and ears,” Myers says. When it comes to TV and newspapers, focus on specific job segments on television programs, or use the news as a platform to learn about something new.
