I am hearing many concerns from my clients about the job market during these uncertain times. In response, here are some tips to help you navigate this strange time:
✓ Determine your values, prioritize your needs, and describe your goals. Then make a plan and execute it.
✓ Stop listening to doomsayers and watching negative media. There are still many good jobs out there.
✓ Identify your top skills, strengths, and attributes and create an impactful way to articulate your value to a potential employer.
✓ Leverage your social media platforms such as LinkedIn. Bolster your social and professional capital which is necessary for overall career health and employability.
✓ Take one step each day in your job search - apply for a position, learn something new, reach out to a new contact, or ask someone for feedback. One of the secrets to a successful job search is consistency so "keep the ball rolling", even if it is just a little each day.
✓ Provide yourself space each day to just breathe. Review your goals, evaluate your progress, identify any challenges, refine your job search strategy, and celebrate how well you are doing during this global crisis.
Most of all, remember that you've got this!
