It’s Time to Spring Clean Your Resume: Step Two

 

Spring is here…the season of new blooms, bright colors, and fresh starts; so are you feeling the itch when it comes to your job?  Do you want to put a coat of fresh paint on your career and land a new job by summer?  Well, this is the perfect time of year to start planting those seeds of change, but where do you begin?  That’s where the team at Professional Staffing Group, LLC, (PSG) comes in.  In today’s post, we’ll cover Step Two.

STEP TWO:  BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO YOUR SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

LOOK AT YOUR TRANSFERABLE SKILLS.

If you’re considering a career change, it’s natural to question whether you can apply to positions in a new career field.  That’s why you should look at what skills you could need for your new job and see which ones you already possess.  It just might give you the encouragement you’ll need in order to look for the job you want.

ASK YOURSELF…WHAT WILL MAKE ME HAPPY?

Are you looking for a new job was because you aren’t happy in your current one?  Instead of blindly starting a new job search, we urge you to take the time to determine what it is about your current job that has made you both happy (and unhappy) and what you’d love to find in a new job (e.g., the ability to work remotely, a company with a great culture, etc.).  Using that knowledge, that research, will help you better know how to narrow your search.

READY TO WORK FROM HOME?

Let’s say that you’re looking for a telecommuting job. Why wait until you already have the job to start scrambling to get your home office ready (which you can write off in taxes by the way)?  While you’re job searching, gather the things you’ll need for success while working from home or “remoting in.”  Find a spot in your home that will serve as your home office, and then equip it with what you’ll need to work remotely. Having everything already set up can help make for an easier transition when you do accept a job offer.

GET YOURSELF OUT THERE…DIGITALLY!

A big component of job searching success is the getting the word out there that you’re actually job hunting; so, be social and hit up your network(s) to let people know that you’re looking for new work opportunities.  We caution you to BE SELECTIVE about with whom you share the news.  After all, you don’t want it to get back to your current boss or co-workers that you might be looking to leave the company before you’ve found the next job!  And, a HUGE NO NO is searching for a job while on your current job.  Simply DON’T DO IT!
