I've moved around a lot over the last few years, and despite often being in a new place and enjoying the chance to explore it, I do end up with long periods of being unemployed. While the frequent moving won't be happening for much longer, I'm afraid that the fallout from frequent job searching will linger anyway, professionally and emotionally. I volunteer in ways that are important to me, which helps, but I don't want to commit to so much that I'd have to back out when I find work. What do you do, or not do, in order to stay optimistic, sane, and attractive to employers while you are trying to get hired?
