Many people who are desperate to change their jobs or careers usually always start out asking the same questions. Questions like how do I start over? Where are the best places for me to start my job search? How do I prepare for a job interview? To help people wanting to make a career transition with these hot topics, the team at LearnHowToBecome.org has put together some new guidebooks and added them to their Career Toolkit. If you are in the process of making a job or career change, you may wish to view the three guides below as they will help you with your career transition, job search and interview skills.
Returning to Your Career: A Guide to Coping with Career Transition Stress
https://www.learnhowtobecome.org/career-resource-center/managing-career-transitions/ – Staying in the same career for 30 years is quickly becoming a rarity. Whether one decides to go back to school, takes time off to care for a family member or goes from military to civilian life, this guide provides advice and resources to help ease the stress of the transition.
How to Personalize Your Hunt for Jobs Online
https://www.learnhowtobecome.org/online-job-search-guide/ – There is no one-size-fits-all approach to job hunting online. The best practices for handling a job search can vary, depending on where applicants are in their career. This guide provides advice on how to conduct a job search online specifically for recent graduates, mid-level professionals, career changers, and executives. In addition, there is information for veterans who have freshly completed military service, as well as those who have recently lost a job or relocated.
How to Nail Your Next Interview
https://www.learnhowtobecome.org/interview-dos-and-donts/ – It takes a lot of work to land a job interview, but that’s only half the battle. Interviews are a hurdle that candidates must successfully jump in order to get the position they want and they should be taken as seriously as any other part of a job search. Candidates will learn what to do before, during, and after a job interview as well as what blunders to avoid.
