I’m always reading and learning new things related to job search and careers. It’s what I do. You really should learn about job search too!
When you invest more time to learn about job search- it’s ins and outs, twists and turns, realities and myths- you’ll understand what you need to do to navigate it better. You’ll also want to learn how to take care of yourself better!
We can all agree – Job search isn’t easy.
It takes great fortitude to put mind over emotions. You’ll want to adopt new ways of communicating, shift your thinking and ditch your assumptions.
In these crazy days of COVID, we have the ability to learn online better than ever before. Everyone is in the same “remote work” boat. Take advantage of this crazy time to invest in new skills (for you and for your job search).
That’s why I share weekly roundups of articles. Feel free to share. And give a shoutout to the talented writers who provide wisdom and insight.
