Know how you had to reset your clock yesterday morning to accommodate the Daylight Saving Time change? As I fiddled around resetting clock after clock, I was thinking about how easy that shift was. Go. Do. Done. Reset. Just like that. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could switch careers or find a new job with a one-step reset? For most, it is not that easy and surely not that simple. Perhaps you will consider some of the following ideas on how to invest that extra 60 minutes you have been given to reset your career clock:
What, if anything, do you need to reset as a job seeker?
Time and commitment you devote to looking for employment?
The strategy you are relying upon to explore new options?
What about the people who serve on your career transition team?
How about your attitude as it relates to looking for work in such a competitive market?
How about your emotional health?
What about your physical well-being?
Or educational resources that provide new insights and ideas?
What about helping others who need your help?
What are you going to do with the gift of an extra 60 minutes?
How might you reset your career clock on this first Monday of November 2012?
