Are you enjoying God?
The Westminster Catechism opens with the question, "What is the chief end of man?" The answer as determined by the Westminster Divines, "The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
Stop and dwell in that statement. Our very purpose for being is to bring glory to God! How do we do that while engaged in our job search? We do it by first recognizing our sabbatical time as a gift from God, designed to move us toward being everything God intended for us when He made us. When we become more of what He created us to be, we bring God glory! We become the affirmation of His goodness (Godness).
As we proceed through the process and He reveals more of the direction we should go, we give Him glory by pursuing those leads. Also, as we work on our job hunt, we often have time which we can make available to others when we learn that they need to see God's working in their lives. As we reveal to them God's working, we glorify Him.
I would suggest that the more time we put into glorifying our heavenly Father as we conduct our job search, the more exciting and productive our search will be. As God receives this glory from us, the more He will reveal to us our own callings and we will truly experience abundant life as He promised to provide it.
