Strategy for the next professional challenge

How to Get the Right Job

Great interview Jodi Glickman, author of the book Great on the Job, with several insights on how to define a strategy to search for the next professional challenge.

Here is a list with some of the tips:

  • Map your skills (strengths and weaknesses) and financial goal, and match them against your target job position;
  • Breakdown between transferable and non-transferable skills between different industries;
  • Use job boards just as a reference, networking is the effective search tool;
  • Request informal meetings with relevant employees from your target company ad ask smart questions;
  • Look for information on-line on career management and coaching (choose only 1-2 reference sites), such as:
  • Brazen Careerist
  • Career Realism
  • New York Times Corner Office
  • Career HMO

Finally, plan in advance and define a time frame. Be prepared to spend time and energy in this task.
