Four Ways to Stay in the Job Seeker Mindset Even if You’re Employed
In the age of unexpected layoffs, anything can happen. That’s why it’s important to be on your toes when it comes to your career. Even if you have a job that you love, it’s important to stay in the job-seeking mindset. Here are some ways to do that, according to FlexJobs.
Seeking feedback from your managers can help you learn what you need to improve on. In an interview if a hiring manager asks you what your weaknesses are, you can answer truthfully but also show self-awareness. This proves that you’re a realistic employee who is willing to improve.
Know You’re Always Learning
Even if you feel like you’re at the top of your game, there’s always new innovations that make way for new skills. Ask yourself what you need to learn, and what career opportunities they could open yu up to.
Set Long-Term Goals
Long-term goals help you adjust and prioritize when life throws you curveballs. It also gives you a bigger idea of what skills you need to incorporate.
Even if you’re comfortable in your career, it’s always good to seek connections with people at other companies or industries. You never know when you might need a mentor or a new job in the future. Tapping into your network can be an empowering tool.
