By now we have all created a list of resolutions which most have already fallen off our to-do-list. But one area you cannot allow to fall off is your Job Search. Take these few steps to prepare yourself and stay motivated without distractions as you search for your next career.

  • You are now a “Professional in Transition” going from the job you had to the best job you will ever have!
  • Be a highly focused and driven professional with great organizational skills tracking the companies you’ve applied for to avoid duplications which in turn can cause a negative response from employers.
  • Create a “prove-it file” with awards, recognition letters, reference letters, certificates, transcripts, honorable discharge papers, and any other documentation that will make you shine!
  • Prepare your 30-second infomercial for meet and greet others at network events. Know it inside out, make it part of you so whenever you meet someone new and they ask “What do you do?” you’ll be ready to respond with total confidence.
