Career Calling

January 5, 2014

Stuck Inside

I live in Chicago.  Over the last two days, we’ve had a winter storm that’s dumped about a foot of snow on the city.  Now a deep freeze is coming that will keep temperatures below zero for the next two days.  In this kind of situation, many of us get stuck in doors.  We’re depressed and kill time watching TV or playing video games.  Why not work on your career instead?

1.  If you’re look for a job, try to get out at least five job applications.

2.  Update your LinkedIn profile.

3.  Update your resume.

4.  Research your profession or industry and learn more about where you can go in the future.

Bad weather sucks.  Use it as a motivation to push your career forward.
