Times are changing quickly. Disruption can have both positive and negative effects. The job market is no exception. Make no mistake, this is not the time to “pause” in your search. Double down, repackage yourself, go to where the opportunities are and, above all else, remain positive.
At some point in your career, you will find yourself either looking for a job because you’re out of work, or because you feel it is time for a change. Whatever the reason, here are four things you can do to help with a successful transition.
