Tip Number 2 – Sell you to yourself before selling to your employer

This may be a confusing statement but the idea is that you should have confidence in your skills and value before applying to a job. How can you expect to convince your potential employer or recruiter you can offer value when you, yourself, don’t believe it? We strongly encourage you to do what you must to gain that confidence because you will see how it improves your candidacy overall.

Tip Number 3 – Things won't always go as expected

Many times, job seekers will have their career plan laid out however 90% of the time, this will take a detour with a possible different destination. Having a plan is good but knowing that your path may not follow that will help you succeed.

Tip Number 4 – Opportunities are there, just waiting to be found

Things are always changing and sometimes when something bad happens like a firing or lay off, a new opportunity opens up. Keeping your eye out for new opportunities will you expand your horizons and you won’t miss out on potential good things.

Tip Number 5 – Prioritize what’s important to you

Understanding what’s important to you in your life will help shape your decisions and your career path. Different things motivate different people and the faster you realize what’s important to you, the faster your search will be. Different careers offer different benefits and learning what matters to you will be the first step to your career of success.
