The Most Impactful Career Resolutions for Job Seekers
If you’re making New Year’s resolutions this week, you may be one of many who are crafting career resolutions. To start the new year off right, focus on the following four things that can significantly impact your job search during the next year. These tasks can help you make sure your resume is the best it can be, that you’re meeting important contacts, brushing up on skills, and searching in all the right places.
Review Your Experience and Resume
Before starting your job search for the new year, take time to review your resume. Reflect on past jobs, and review the skills you’ve learned in the past year. Don’t underestimate how much knowledge or ability you have and what you may add to your resume to update it for the new year. If a skill is relevant to the kind of work you’re looking for, add it to your resume to make it shine.
Build Out and Contact Your Network
Reach out to friends, family, and professional connections to discover if any of them know of upcoming or current job opportunities. By letting others know what you are looking for, you can increase your chances of hearing about appealing opportunities.
Your career resolutions can also be met by using the help of a staffing agency. At First Team Staffing, you have access to exclusive job openings in various industries. Let the staffing agents know what you are looking for, and they can keep an eye out for opportunities.
Identify Areas You Can Develop
Think carefully about the types of work you want to do and how you can position yourself to get those jobs. Consider taking online classes, and look into specialized training that can help you become a more attractive applicant. If your dream job has specific requirements you don’t yet meet, focus on career resolutions that can get you the skills or experience you need.
Vow to Always Be Searching
Finding the right job takes a lot of time and dedication. A long-term job search can sometimes be challenging, but dedicating time to searching for the jobs you want will help you find various opportunities you may not have discovered before.
When you work with a staffing agency to enhance your job search, you can find jobs that can help you build skills and experience while exposing you to industries you may not have considered previously. Keep an open mind and keep searching until you land your next dream job.
