New Ways For Job Seekers To Efficiently Use Lockdown Period
Reconnect with your ambition
Simply rewind or take a sneak peek into a flashback to understand what you always wanted to be. Realize your ambition. Search for that one profession that you feel is made for you. One cannot enter any random occupation they once eavesdropped. Neither can we trespass all professions mindlessly without proper knowledge. So, find that one job that you wish to pursue for the rest of your life. Reconnect with your goals and how you want to mould your career. Focus on what you want to achieve.
Introspect and take a step
This is one of the most important aspects people mostly ignore. Once you are aware of what you wish to do, the next step is how to reach there. Do a SWOT analysis. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses equally gives you a clear picture of the present which can be then utilized to better your future. Be apprised of what you lack and focus on improving those areas to get your dream job.
Self-learning is the best form of understanding. Utilize your time in understanding the concepts related to your field of study. Try to envision where the concepts can be put to use. Primitive pedagogies of rote learning are of zero use if one is not aware of their application in real time. Reading, learning, understanding and applying are distinct processes. This especially applies to the jobs of medical practitioners, architects and engineers.
Be mentored by the best
With ample time in hand, one may search and connect with the gods of their fields. Follow their work to understand what they did and how they reached there? Seek their help when in doubt as their guidance can aid you with your subject, immensely. Such experts can render priceless advice and suggestions for your career.
Identify the right organizations and apply for a job
This may sound debatable but some organizations and verticals are functioning unhindered, despite the coronavirus crisis. Most of such organizations have requisite infrastructure in place and the model of their business enables employees to work from home. Identify those organizations and apply for a job. It is also important to connect with organizations that support remote learning during such times. They can assist you with your goals and open new windows to better opportunities. But, most importantly, they help you in staying positive.
