In order to make that transition, you need to be fully prepared. Prepared. Prepared. We can't stress it enough...
Some bright ideas are discussed by Venetia Reiney in this Guardian article, as Venetia writes on her own experience with the Job Centre and life since graduating.
Another great article we found this week actually comes in the form of Executive job search, but the principles are the same. Here's our take:
- Shout about your strengths, and use this time to develop your weaknesses
- Think positive. Act positively.
- Be persistent - as the old saying goes "Rome was not built in a day"...
- Get your 30 second commercial in order so you are prepared for that all important interview.
