Step 4: Make Your Personal Brand & Guerrilla Marketing Efforts
Step 5: Close the Gaps
Step 1a, 2a, 3a, 4a, 5a: Stay Motivated, Positive & Keep At It!
Step 6: Research Job Market
Step 7: Network/Apply to Jobs
Step 8: Interview Process

Depending on your Career Goal these steps may have many layers or they could be very quick & simplistic. Not every step will apply to everyone. Admittedly, it’s a lot to absorb, so this week I will hold a webinar on Wednesday 1/28 @ 12:30pm EST to review these steps and how to successfully tackle them.
This process & webinar applies to any career field & someone in career transition. I hope you will be able to join the webinar.
