If you’re feeling down and out, are you talking to others?
Have you thought about reaching out to outbound Business Development Reps (BDRs)/Sales Development Reps (SDRs).
Their job is hard. They face rejection everyday. They strategize on better ways to communicate and ask relevant questions. They determine who the right prospect is by proper research. They organize their day the day before. They’re very knowledgeable on their product or service.
Most importantly, they push through being uncomfortable daily.
I realize you’re not necessarily looking to get into being an outbound sales rep.
But there’s a lot of similarities between their role and your pursuit in landing your 1st (next) position.
If you reach out to a handful of SDRs/BDRs, most will probably get back to you to discuss what keeps them going.
Or just find some that stay active posting about their day on LinkedIn and follow them.
I think you’ll learn something new.
It could be the extra motivation that you were looking for.
