You’ve taken down the holiday decorations, put away the wrapping paper, and eaten way too much food for your own good. The reality of January is fast approaching, and as a Phoenix job seeker you know that it’s time to get back into the job hunting process. Getting ready for the interview process is important, but remember to tune up your overall work skills too.
- Research trends in your industry. Understanding some of the newest products or services in your industry will help you to have relevant discussions with employers.
- Update your technology skills. If you have been delaying a tutorial on a computer program you need to know for the workplace, now is the time to buckle down and complete it.
- Identify new ways you could be helpful in the workplace. How can you help train or mentor co-workers? Are there skills you have that you can share on projects or in teams.
Keep your positive attitude by integrating exercise and stress reducing activities while you are searching too. Let the New Year be a time to re-energize and refocus to kick off your career search.
