If you aren’t content with your current job, economic conditions are such that now is a good time to begin searching for a new one. The first step is to update your resume. This will let you jump on a new job opportunity as soon as it opens up. Next, work on your talking points, especially how you would answer the popular question “tell me about yourself.” Last, update your LinkedIn profile, paying attention to your photo, work experience and contact information. Once you’ve finished these steps, you are ready to begin your search.
