For those professionals who feel that they are undervalued and overworked and are striking out seeking greener pastures in their next professional job, stop and answer these 3 questions to get started:
- Identify your strongest 3 job skill areas or areas of expertise?
- How do others describe your problem solving ability?
- If there were only 3 things you could share with an employer about your knowledge, skills, abilities, talents and background, what would they be?
Now that you have answered these three questions, start to look for more challenging positions than your current job description. Be sure that you have affiliated yourself with your professional industry association as many unofficial jobs will be talked about within the organization. Be sure that you are able to speak with others in casual conversation about your you skills that set you apart from other professionals with similar skills and backgrounds. Start here as a part of a well thought out job search strategic plan.
