For those of you who already have a job, congratulations to you. Now is the time that you should be pondering about your next job. How?
While you are trying to focus on giving your best for the sake of your new employer, you should also take the time to map out your next plan, so that you will have a guide on what are the necessary skills and other experiences that you need to have.
Just a little perspective for you – you are not trying to look for a job that you will be retiring from. That is unheard of. You should be looking for a chance where you could get to gain experiences and skills instead. For this, you should have a proper understanding on the things that you are passionate about. Use these questions as your guide – how do you do it, what what so you do, with some do you do it, and where do you do it. After considering these, you should be able to have a perspective on the jobs that fit all of these aspects. Use your answers as keyword guides on careerbuilder.com or indeed.com to search for different opportunities. You may come across these in the form of jobs, volunteering works, or internships.
Next, work on your LinkedIn profile. You should be aiming for 100/100. This means 100 professional contacts and 100 percent complete. Hint – these are not your buddies but real live professional (it’s not Facebook people).
