Don’t proceed without pinpointing your job search goals
Many people have marketable assets and skills… but fail to go after the right occupations. Oftentimes they pursue the wrong job titles. However, if their transferable skills are clarified, they can be repositioned for different goals, and sometimes for much more advancement than they thought possible.
We all have seen career fields change dramatically in recent years. Fields that once offered great opportunity have become financially confining with limited growth possibilities. Believe it or not, there are 22,000 different job titles in use today, but 95% of all professionals fall within one of 400 career specialties which are in significant demand.
Many people select new careers based on one motivating factor: Your previous experience may be related; You may have knowledge through education; Knowledge may exist from outside interests; Your choices are made based on transferable skills. Fortunately, the internet provides a lot of helpful guidance on uncovering career options. And even offers job seekers management tools and job search engines to help in the daunting jobhunt task.
