Once you have commenced gathering some information, you need to start your work plan.
It is important that you:
- Identify your skills, abilities and past achievements.
- Decide your personal needs, such as preferred work and lifestyles.
- Search the papers and identify relevant actual job titles of the types of positions that you believe you would be suited to, or that you would aspire to achieve in the future. Think not just about your next job but where you would like to be in a few years time. Plan now. This should give you some ideas on the skills and qualifications required for these positions.
The next major task is to prepare a resume.
