Gone are the days when jobs were readily available. It’s important to take charge of your career in today’s job market. How exactly do you take charge of your career to make sure that you reach your goal?

  1. Always Update Your Resume: It’s important to always have your CV ready and prepared for instances where you will be requested to send it. You don’t want to miss out on an opportunity because you were not prepared with your CV.

  2. Highlight your accomplishments: Were you able to rapidly increase sales at a company, or increase website traffic? Be ready to highlight your achievements at any moment's notice. Nothing says i’m good at my job more than showing your accomplishments to a potential employer.

  3. Build a Network: Having a good network of people will help you all throughout your career. How do you build one? Meet up with like minded people either face to face or online. Networking helps build relationships that may open up opportunities for you.

  4. Get A Mentor: Having a mentor will help you keep your career on track. Identify someone who you look up to in the same industry as you. This mentor will give you advice and will be able to answer all the questions that you have when it comes to your career.

  5. Design Your Future: Sit down and build a map of how you see your career trajectory. Design what you where you want your life to be and write down your goals. This will serve as the best guide for you.
