Not too many people really work well alone. Unfortunately, this is exactly what happens from day to day in your job search efforts. You are sitting at home, alone, making phone calls, writing cover letters and doing research. The atmosphere of a team environment has drastically changed to more like a 'sick day' and most people can easily fall into that trap without a Job Search Buddy.
Make sure that this person is positive and challenges you. So often we can become distracted or dismayed in our job search. It can be anything from sleeping in, to watching our favorite tv show or hanging out on social networking sites. Only you can be accountable for your job search efforts at the end of the day.
For those out of work and looking for a job, staying motivated can be feel impossible at times. With a good Job Search Buddy you can rest assured that you will be held accountable for your day as well as having someone to bounce ideas off and who can celebrate with you over your daily accomplishments.
