Habit #2 – Benchmark your Career Asset. Knowing the true market value of your skills, talents and experiences is vitally important to your Career Asset. Never is this more critical than when your current employment situation is at risk for change due to layoff, downsizing, outsourcing or any number of other unexpected events. Knowing what you should expect — not only what you’re currently paid — is an important element of any job search.
Habit #3 – Network. Although physical networking may be impaired due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are numerous other ways to network. Ensuring your LinkedIn profile is properly set-up, refreshed, and optimized is one way to participate in virtual networking.
