Does your employer offer training that will let you improve your professional skills? If so, find a way to take advantage of this resource. One of my clients is looking to change jobs. However, while he’s looking for a new employer, he’s also using an online resource to improve his computer skills.
There is one note of caution. If you’re enrolled in a formal degree or certification program, be sure you know the employer’s requirements. Most employers require that you work for a company so long while/after completing degrees or you may be responsible for repaying tuition costs.
Training can lead you to a promotion or a new job. Take advantage of it whenever possible.
