A Single Woman’s Job Search

Ask any single woman involved in a job search and she’ll tell you it’s different for her than her married or partnered friends.

Being single means going it alone—from the early stages of deciding to look for a job, to the how and where to search, to the interview and negotiation phases of the process.

Amid it all, self-doubt, fear, procrastination, denial, insecurity, and other negativity can threaten success. Sound familiar?

Acknowledging these potential obstacles is one of the many reasons SingleMindedWomen.com likes Diary of a Job Searching Woman, a blog at Make It Happen for Women, a provider of personalized career services for women.

As the blog details the job search of a single woman, it shows how she struggles with emotional issues as well as more practical matters, like updating her resume.

Diary of a Job Searching Woman offers some terrific insights. As important, it sends a message to single women job seekers that their reactions are shared by other single women—and, as a result, they are not alone.
