Don’t Sit On The Sidelines
Don’t sit on the sidelines! Unfortunately, too many potential job changers look at this time of year though January 1st saying to themselves, “Not Now” with the misguided belief that everyone is too busy to help them, thus making what they have said to themselves become their reality and stay stuck. The next six weeks can provide unique networking opportunities and potential access to individuals otherwise challenging to meet. As my Senior HR Director friend told me, “with many job seekers becoming inactive at this time, my staff and I are often more available to meet and help the serious job seeker than at other times of the year.” If you are looking to be seriously considered for a new, better fantastic job in early 2019, then please don’t sit on the sidelines. Take your gifts, skills, talents and interests seriously. Make a plan of action for yourself and surround yourself with realistically positive people who have successfully survived and succeeded in managing the transition of finding a new and rewarding employment opportunity. So off the sidelines you go, one day at a time, listening to your heart and following your smile. All my best to each of you!
