There are 2 things that I am sure that you have heard before:

  1.  Looking for a job is a full-time job, and
  2.  You should expect to spend 1 month looking for every $10,000 / year that you are asking for ($50,000 salary will take 5 months to find).

The problem is that most people spend about 6 hours a week looking for a job. Think of how you can shorten that time to find the perfect job by increasing the hours spent each week.
