Research Your Best-Fit Job
While career exploration may start because of your job dissatisfaction, actually discovering your best-fit job requires more than just daydreaming and hoping things will change. It requires action!
After you have determined the foundation elements of YOU, including your personal brand, strengths, interests and passions, personality type, values, and needs through career assessments and dig-deep reflection, it is time for career research.
For best results, that research should encompass several important aspects. You will find them listed below, along with some useful links for research.
1. Career and Occupational Information
2. Employment Trends
4. Trade and Professional Associations
6. Job Postings
7. Salary Information
8. Key Influencers, Thought Leaders, Recruiters, and Interviewers
Including social media tools in your online research is vital. It will enable you to connect with the people who can be a source of critical career and industry information, professional advice, job leads, and employee referrals. Take your budding online relationships with these key advisors offline for an even deeper level of connection that could lead to valuable mentoring relationships.
