12-month Career Guide to staying prepared for a new career opportunity. . .

If you are happy with your current job, but recognize  your employment situation or expectations could change, this article is for you. Over the next 6 months, we will take time to break down what many analyst have suggested people, like yourself, should do to prepare for a new opportunity, should it come your way.

Create a job wish list by including the positives from the  January list.  Then set up a search on the internet based on your findings.  Good sources to start searching are and These sites will learn about your job interest and email the results to you. You control the frequency of your search result delivery and can remain anonymous to your current employers.

Now create a pros and cons list about your current place of employment…

  • What do you like about it?

  • What do you hate about it?

Be specific including salary, co-workers, commuting, bonus plan, and anything else that comes to mind.  Don’t do this in one sitting… instead, keep a running list all month long. @ the end of the month, you’ll have a pretty good list of ideas about your job.

Assess your network of acquaintances.  Are you meeting the right people at work? Have you met anyone who can help you find a better job or move up at your current company? If not, sign up for clubs and/or groups catering to your profession.

In addition, strongly consider volunteering with a community group or club that interests you.  You might find that the work is rewarding enough to even consider a pay cut or change in lifestyle, although that's not often even necessary.

It's time to focus on the objective of your resume.  Using what you've learned about yourself and your job, create a one- or two-sentence summary of your desired career goals.  Depending on the job you may be applying for, parts of your objective may be altered (as needed).  But the core of the message should always be the same.
