Evaluate Your Assets
Make a list of everything you can do. Don’t limit this list to what you think is your career field. Good jobs often present from personal skills you would never consider. Computer skills will always give you an edge no matter what career path you are pursuing. Freelance writing hones your communication skills.
Use Social Media Sites Advantageously
Clean up your social media sites. Increasingly, a search of your social media presence is part of a prescreen process for job consideration. Get rid of anything online that can hurt your chances. Delete accounts that can injure your reputation. Use your accounts to present yourself favorably. Market yourself. Sites like LinkedIn are perfect for networking.
Treat Yourself As A Desirable Commodity
Think business. Think bottom line. Think of yourself as that unique product that any company should be proud to use to expand their earning potential.
Take Classes To Round Out Education
Classes in computer skills, app development, business, writing skills carry weight in qualifying one job applicant over another. Everything from a family unit to a government benefits from business skills and marketing practices.
Use An Employment Agency
Think of a temp agency as a chance to try out jobs you would not normally think of. These temp opportunities give you income until something permanent comes along. If you find you like a temp company, don’t hesitate to visit their HR department to apply for a permanent position. You already have proven your work ethics.
To a potential employer, your temp assignments show you are not above doing what it takes to get the job done. They also show your ability to adapt to new work related situations. Your confidence will soar and it will show during future interviews.
