Most of you are probably familiar with the well known Boy Scout motto, “Be Prepared”. Though many of you will never be stranded in the middle of the forest lacking supplies for survival, you can still glean from this motto. Preparedness is an important tool in all aspects of life, and it’s especially important when it comes to unexpected career changes.
Even if you currently see yourself firmly planted in a secure job, you must be realistic. Sometimes circumstances spin out of control, and we can find ourselves in a situation that we never anticipated. In the event of such a surprise, wouldn’t it be nice to forge ahead with a steady peace rather than chaotic worry?
It’s important to have your emergency kit ready when it comes to your career. Maybe opportunity will knock softly upon your door or, instead, slap you boldly across the face. You need to have a plan in place and be ready to step into the unexpected future with confidence. This assurance can only be found by putting in the work now.
Waiting too late to refine your resume can mean seeing the other guy get the dream job you always wanted. Getting lazy about updating your LinkedIn profile can result in being overlooked by that particular recruiter. In order to be prepared, you should consider the following: current resume, interview skills 101, an extensive list of professional contacts, and a professionally updated social media platform.
