The idea that there are many people who have it harder than you is pretty bad. I'll tell you the end result of being paralyzed in thinking by corporate livestock.

I'm a busy person, but I can do a job search in my spare time. How I tried it.

There are many people who want to change jobs but are too busy with their current job to change jobs.

I have been in that situation before.

I was trying to devise various ways of doing things at such times, so I thought I would tell you about them in the hope that they would be of some help to you.

No matter how busy you are, you can still devote time to your job search.

No matter how busy you are (unless you are stuck in an office 24 hours a day), there is always time to devote to your job search in various situations.

For example, the following times

  • commuting time
  • during lunch
  • before retiring
  • holiday

Even if it takes a few minutes or even tens of minutes, you can write an entry form on your smartphone or PC and check out the latest jobs.

I myself would often check and favorite jobs during my commute to work, and I would often edit my entry sheets as well.

If the company only has interviews on weekdays, getting paid is one option.

*If you have a work environment where you can get paid.

At the company where I worked as a sales representative, there was a mysterious unspoken rule that I could never get paid, so I could not go to interviews on weekdays.

But I think some companies have environments where it is easy to get paid.

In those places, you can go for an interview if you get paid. Paid work is a privilege, so if you are in an environment where it is easy to get paid, you should use it.

One way is to look for or ask if Skype interviews or nighttime interviews are acceptable.

Although there are still a few companies that do so, some companies offer evening interviews for those who are looking for a new job while working.

Some companies also offer Skype interviews for those who are far away or busy.

One way to do this is to apply for an interview with one of these companies if you find one that interests you.

As the online environment continues to advance, Skype interviews are likely to increase dramatically, though.

If you still can't get a good interview time.

Even if you are planning to use your paid time to interview, it may take some time to apply for the paid time, or you may not be able to make a good schedule with the company where you are scheduled to interview.

In such cases, first look for and favoritize as many jobs as possible that you think are good, and then inform the company of your intention to quit. Then, after confirming the time of quitting and the period and start date of paid vacation, I apply for all the jobs I have saved up until that time.

And if you make it all the way to the interview, cram your schedule with paid work! The ideal situation is to

And if you get a job offer, perfect.

Well, but this is.There is no assurance that you will get an offer.And I think it is the last resort for those who are really too busy with their time to go for interviews. So it is a super speedy process.

The worst that can happen is that you don't get a job offer... (I had this happen to me when I quit in a hurry).

So you should think carefully about it, so tell the company your intention to quit and start the interview! You should really make it a last resort to

The feeling of not being able to decide on a company and having your paid vacation time disappear rapidly is unbearable.

Save up a "career change fund" if you can.

This is before you start looking for a new job, but if you are even slightly aware of the possibility of changing jobs, it is recommended that you start saving money for a new job at that stage.

If your job search goes smoothly and you are able to leave your previous job and join your next company right away, you will not have to worry about money.

But there are times when it doesn't work out at all. If you save in advance for such a situation, you can avoid the anxiety of losing money.

So if you can, try to look at savings as a way to prepare for a career change.


For those who have already made up their minds and are too busy to change jobs, try to make preparations as much as possible in your spare time while you are still employed, and use holidays and paid time off to advance your job search.

If you still can't find time for a large number of interviews, I think it would be a good idea to decide to quit and schedule all the interviews at once while you are on a paid vacation.

I believe that during the paid period is the golden time when money is generated, so those who could not take the job search during their tenure should use this period as meaningfully as possible and work to find a new job as soon as possible.

For this reason, I recommend that you keep in mind the use of skimming during your tenure. I hope this is of some help to you.
