Time to strategize!

When job searching, everyone wants to discover the best tools and tactics to find their dream job. The first step in this process, for many of us, is to hit the Internet and scour search engines for career searching tips. When I conducted a search on Google, I was amazed at the sheer number of articles claiming to have the “top 5,” “top 10,” or even “top 70” tips and tools for the job search. The one element all of these lists seem to lack is the most important element of the job hunt: having a plan. All the tools in the world won’t be able to help you unless you have a goal and a plan to achieve it.

Your value in the workforce comes from your ability to “do something.” Everyone has something they are good at, but having more unique or specialized skills can increase your value.

It’s not enough to say you’re a “jack of all trades” anymore. While having a varied skill set makes you a good resource for a company, it will not necessarily get you the job. In order to create a career plan and successfully launch your job search, you’ll need to answer three very important questions. For these questions and more insight, read the rest of this blog, originally posted on the St. Thomas Opus Magnum Blog.
