Do not prevent yourself in creating and grasping opportunities.
The work marketplace is constantly evolving. At any time, the demands for certain job can change and the career avenues could be closed off, allowing new openings to set in. If there are sectors you interested in, make sure that you are fully informed of the trends and requirements as well as the changes. Familiarize yourself with the most up to date information.
It is a wise idea to start developing and maintaining wide professional network that will help you in your career growth or even in change of career growth. You can never tell when a contact may be valuable.
We all have networks. Your family, friends and neighbors are one of them. Your colleagues, staff in your institution, co-workers, former co-workers, even your employers and managers both present and past. People who you deal with through social groups, sports clubs, seminars and trainings are part of your network.
It is important to find opportunities to widen your networks. Attend seminars and conferences to meet new people. Prioritize areas where you need to expand your network.
