New Year Means New Jobs for Many

If your New Year’s Resolution was to find a new job, here are some tips to aid in your job search

The new year is a great time for new beginnings. If you’ve been thinking about getting out of your old job and into something else, now is a great time to grab the bull by the horns and go for it. It may seem overwhelming at first, but there are a few things you can do to improve your chances at the new job game.

  1. This is so important. They say 70 percent of jobs are gotten through networking. Find ways to network and make more connections with people in your field of interest. Go to industry events, alumni mixers, seminars, wherever the people are. Use your social media for putting your best face forward instead of sharing all the latest memes. You never know who might have information or a connection you could use, so talk to everyone.
  2. Educate yourself. Continuing education helps you stay relevant in your field. Take a class at the community college, or go for a special certification. It will help keep your skills remain fresh and sharp, and it will show that you are up-to-date on the latest ways of doing things.
  3. Work with a staffing agency.
