Stay Inspired: Here's your 2015 job search checklist MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- List What You're Thankful For: Attitude impacts everything in your job search. Give yourself an attitude boost by listing five things that you're thankful for in your life. Even when times are tough, you can likely find a few things to be grateful for.

Create a Daily Goal List: A simple checklist of no more than three goals can help you stay on track, give you a sense of productivity and allow you to feel a sense of accomplishment as you check off the items. Even better, an organized, consistent approach to your search is also more likely to result in a job. Revisit Your Finances: Exercise some control over the money you're currently spending. If you don't know where your money goes each month, make it a priority to figure it out now. Once you know how much money you require to live, you can look at tradeoffs in terms of your job search.

Determine Your Minimum Standards: If you have been looking for a job for a long time, you may have fallen prey to well-meaning friends and relatives who suggest that you take any job, even one outside of your field or below your desired salary. Depending on your situation, this might be good advice. But proactively thinking about the timetable and plan that works for you will help you to manage your job search as well as respond to your friends in a deliberate way.
