The 4 Steps TODAY for tomorrow’s dream job!

Knowledge and perspective are two of the most powerful tools for positioning yourself within the marketplace. Whether you're just starting out in the workforce or looking to make a change in your career, it's important to take these steps, and the time, to do the work for you to achieve your desired career! Make the most out of your current skills and set yourself up to gain the rest with these simple initial steps!

1) Do your research

What is the typical professional development path for someone in your industry? Talk to people in the field. The more knowledge you have, the clearer your path forward will become. 

2) Read job descriptions

This might seem like a given, but it's also often overlooked! Read job descriptions in your field to understand different positions and the skills required. Even if you may be a few developmental stages away from your dream job, it’s still valuable to understand what skills you need.

3) Build a network

Write a list of friends, family or professional contacts that might be able to help or provide networking leads. Your network doesn’t have to be big to connect you with opportunities. Start with social media, and specifically, LinkedIn. If you're looking to go outside the box, try Instagram! 

4) Ask questions

Don't be afraid and demonstrate your passion and interest in your field by asking great questions. As you gain knowledge, you’ll be able to speak confidently about your field and articulate your plans for growth.
