Many people who are looking for work don't do enough to get a job because they're demoralized by their job loss and also don't realize the hard work and planning involved in finding a new position, Harry Urschel writes. "When the job search drags on, it's very easy to blame the economy, some liability in their job history, discriminatory factors, time of year, or any number of other reasons," he writes. "Some are legitimate. However, virtually any obstacle can be overcome with enough time, energy, and effort applied to the search each day."
