3 phases of job search

That’s the total job search phases one will go through, #Haniesays

1) Phase 1, ideal phase – where there is no rush, still on holiday mode, cost of living is at optimum 6 months. Looking at all best/ideal job criteria, pays RM12 for morning latte

2) Phase 2, worrying phase – starts looking at job boards, talking to head hunters and friends, cost of living covers about 2-3 months. Striking out top 3 work values, pays RM6.50 for kopi

3) Phase 3, do or die – talks to everyone, have coffee at home.

Which phase are you at? Trust me, I have gone through all 3 phases.
