I’ve seen too many job seekers make these mistakes — don’t let these happen to you!

1- Not figuring out your CAREER DIRECTION, skills and expertise before starting your job search journey

2- Assuming that your RESUME is good enough even though you’ve last updated it a long time ago with outdated advice from the wrong people.

3- Applying to TOO FEW job positions and expecting that every company you applied to will 100% invite you for an interview.

4- Applying RANDOMLY to every single job out there, but did not spend time reviewing the job description for suitability.

5- Spending TOO MUCH TIME consuming online content, but not enough time on job search activities daily.

Here’s what you should do before it becomes a serious problem in your career:

1- LIST YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS

— both big and small

2- TRY SOMETHING CREATIVE

— Get outside of your comfort zone and explore

3- MASTER A NEW SKILL

— Confidence comes from becoming competent in something you’re currently struggling with

4- HELP SOMEONE TODAY

— Joy is in supporting someone else would really appreciate it

5- DEFINE YOUR OWN SUCCESS

— Don’t compare yourself with others. Do what matters to you.

❓Do you have high self-esteem? Or do you often doubt your own talent and abilities? Join the conversation on my LinkedIn.

Here are 3 things I was naturally bad at (and eventually mastered) for career growth:

1- PUBLIC SPEAKING

I prefer hiding and doing the work in the background. But it reached a point that was stopping me from moving ahead in my career, so I had to really my speaking and presentation skills.

2- ATTENTION TO DETAIL

I’m naturally a very big picture person, so doing detailed work was very challenging for a long time. It paid great rewards in my career later on!

3- SMALL TALK

I’m an introvert, so go figure! Nowadays I can get along with pretty much anyone!

Whether you like it or not, we all have a reputation — it’s how people perceive you at work (offline) or on LinkedIn (online). How?

OFFLINE:

1- Your work deliverables is where your boss or seniors judge your quality, skills and value.

2- Your communication and collaboration with others are how your boss judge if you’re ready for a leadership role.

ONLINE:

1- Your LinkedIn Profile is the main page where your people judge your professional value and work experiences

2- Your LinkedIn activity is how people judge your attitude and professionalism.
