Are you driving your career and job search? It takes time and effort to manage your professional life. Don’t just watch it zoom by, take the wheel! Here’s help!
Every week I share hundreds of articles on job search, career advancement and social media trends. And on Sunday’s I collect the most popular ones to highlight here.
This is what I know and what I want you to know.
1. It takes effort to manage your career. No one is going to do it for you.
2. Job search is more complicated and requires new skills and strategies.
You ARE NOT going to land a job because you’ve applied for a job you found online. That is, not unless you know people inside the company, follow up on your application, and/or a miracle strikes. Anything that is too easy, like submitting a resume to a job you know nothing about, is too good to be true.
