Are you aware of the common mistakes job seekers make? What steps have you taken in your consideration of a career change?
When looking for a job, you should always put your best foot forward. Update your resume, and be confident when talking about points that are relevant to your job or industry.
You’ve got to stand out and be strategic. Use social media to connect with people and professionals, especially those in the same industry as you. Social media gives you an edge through familiarity and commonality.
Connect through LinkedIn. Start posting, talk about marketing efforts around your industry. Start building up your profile and get recognized.
Sometimes people are afraid to ask questions and to be direct. We have to keep trying, let go of that fear, and keep moving forward.
