Each of us has a niche. A place where we can practice our specialty. It seems we sometimes forget what we love to do and why.
Re-evaluating who we are and what we do is critically important.
Secondly, is finding a niche that will provide financial gain.
I don't believe that most of us are qualified or even capable of seeing what our niche is. It will take someone else to help us identify what this niche is. I say thins because, I have struggled myself, and this is what I do for a living. It took a conversation over coffee to validate my niche and this will allow me to move forward. It took way too long for me to make this happen. I also want to thank my colleague for helping me with this, Luis, thank you!
Take time out of your job search, and early in the process, to sit down and begin the self assessment. I have written a lot about self assessment because it is the one thing most unemployed and employed job seekers don't take the time to do.
