Burnout has moved to the front burner as of late, having been recently named an diagnosable ailment by The World Health Organization. Recent LinkedIn research shows an astonishing 97 percent of millennials feel burned out.
The causes of burnout are many and many-faceted. Across all age groups, 70 percent say they aren’t unplugging during vacations. There’s a help gap as 30 percent of professionals admit they’d rather work an extra six hours a week than seek help. And the more money you make, the more stress you take: 47 percent of people making $35,000-$50,000 a year said they were stressed at work, while the number jumped to 68 percent for those earning $200,000+ annually.
It gets trickier. So you feel burned out and commit to find another job, but you know the job search itself is exhausting and will suck up the last few fumes you’re running on.
The prospect of becoming a prospect is daunting.
LinkedIn’s research shows that as a result, 39 percent of U.S. job seekers say the job-hunt process being too stressful and exhausting is one of the main roadblocks for finding a new job.
So how do you break free from this trap?
I enrolled the help of LinkedIn Career expert Blair Decembrele who shared six ways to conduct a job search in a way that won’t burn you out more than you already are.
