It’s time to get back in the game because job opportunities are on the rise and employers are ready to hire!
If you’ve been searching for a job over the past year, it’s been a drag. You’ve been ghosted, rejected and/or dismissed. But now is the time to reignite your search and get back in the game.
But don’t start where you left off.
Research companies you would like to work for. Refine your personal branding. Reach out to people you know who work inside target companies.
