The Key To Nabbing A Brand New Career With Confidence

If you’ve been stuck in a career that hasn’t resonated with you for some time, there is no better time to remove yourself from the situation. You may be waiting for something to happen - to get a promotion, to find the ‘perfect’ new career, or waiting for something else to change. The fact is, many of the reasons people wait to take action are nothing more than excuses. If you’ve been waiting for a promotion for a long time and you still haven’t got one, it could be time to move on. If you’re waiting for your dream career to knock on your door, it won’t happen. It’s up to you to get out and find it! Below, you’ll find ways to lift your confidence when it comes to nabbing a brand new career. 

Take a look and see what you can do, and you might have a brand spanking new career before you know it: 

Think Of Yourself As A Product
You’re not a product, you’re a person - but just think of yourself as one for a moment. What could you do to make yourself a more attractive product for any employer? Could you do an online course, or even a part time college course? What skills could you improve? Learning and building your skills should never stop, as this will help you both personally and professionally. 

Jazz Up Your CV
Your resume may be lacking something special, so take the time to jazz it up now. If you’re not even sure where to begin, try using a resume maker for an outline and some helpful pointers. Take a look at unique resumes online, and tailor yours to the different places you apply. Don’t send out the same resume to different companies. They want to know why you specifically want to work for them and what you can bring to the table! 

Ignore Your Inner Critic
The inner critic is often louder than any inner fan. Now is the time to learn to silence, or at least ignore your inner critic. Women are often more afraid to go for jobs they don’t think they are qualified for, whereas studies have shown men regularly apply for jobs they aren't qualified for. Start trying your luck and you never know where you might end up. Don’t hold yourself back.

Look At Working For Companies That Are In Alignment With Your Values
Do plenty of research on a company before sending in your resume. This will enable you to impress them during the interview stages, tailor your resume, and ensure you’re going to be happy in the working environment! 

Practice Your Interview Techniques 
You’d be surprised at how taking interview techniques seriously with a loved one can show you where you need to improve. Get comfortable talking about yourself and your accomplishments. 

Work On Your Mindset 
Take the time to work on your mindset and improve your self image. There are so many amazing books and YouTube videos on the subject! 

Come Up With A List Of Your Own Questions 
Finally, don’t show up to an interview without a list of your own questions. This shows that you’re genuinely interested in the company and role, and it helps you to go home with everything you need to mull over the position.
