So you might be wondering what you can change to achieve more career success. Here are some thoughts and ideas.
You Can Change Your Approach To Job Search

You Can Change How You Showcase Yourself
There are 2 main ways in which you showcase yourself these days.
One is your CV or resume. The other is your LinkedIn profile.
Unless both these sources market you well, you are not going to have the impact you could and lose out on potential opportunities that you are actually a good fit for.
You Can Change How You Prepare For Job Interviews

By that I mean they fail to spend sufficient time ahead of job interviews to perform well.
You Can Change Your Perspective
In the ideal world everything would go well all of the time. In the real world this is rarely the case.
Your perspective or outlook when things are not going so well is a big factor.
So what will give you the biggest benefit right now and get you moving in your career?
