We have officially entered 2023, and for many people, that means it’s time to make some changes and turn over a new leaf. Finding a new job may be a positive change that you’re wanting to make this year. It provides a new beginning and can help put you on the trajectory for a happier, stronger future. Here are some tips on how to find and secure a new job this year.
Invest in yourself
Know your worth and invest in it. This might mean taking a bit of time off to reenergize and prioritize your mental health. Or, you might consider enrolling in some classes or courses for certification that can help bolster your resume and give you the opportunity to stand out from other candidates. Take a close look at what ambitions you have for your career and your life as a whole and don’t be afraid to make a list of action items that can help take you to the next level.
Try something new
The last few years have taught many of us that we are resilient and adaptable. While sometimes it is difficult to be forced out of our comfort zones, sometimes it’s exactly what is needed to try something new that allows us to find a new niche. Take some risks, wrap your head around the fact that you won’t always know the future, and take a leap into a career that you’ve always wanted. Take stock of your talents, expertise, and gifts, and see how those align with a job. Our team at Household Staffing takes great care to get to know our candidates and their abilities, so we can make sure we can place you in a role that you love for the long term.
Reevaluate your cover letter and resume
Make sure your resume is up to date with your most recent work and volunteer experience, in addition to any certifications or degrees you have earned. Also, check closely that everything is grammatically accurate and that there are no typos. Contact your references and ask if they are still okay with serving as references for you and if not, find some new contacts. Your resume and cover letter give potential employers a glimpse into your experience and your personality, so make sure each document makes a positive impression.
