Tips for new job seekers: Forward planning

This is absolutely vital. Only you can decide who you are.

Remember that all jobs are about skills. If you don't have the skills, acquire them. Getting training for practically anything has never been easier.

Figure out how to get from A to B. This is Stage One planning. Plan it out, cost it, check facts and time frames. Is it doable? Do it.

Figure out where the idea takes you after you complete Stage One. Does it lead to better jobs? Still looks good? Do it.

Never allow being unemployed to run your life for you.

Get busy, and do it now.
