There are many ways to thrive and develop as professional. You always need to focus on seizing any and all opportunities around you–that means connecting with your networking, building new connections, developing your knowledge base and keeping an ear to the ground when it comes to the economy and the labour market.
Google is one of the best resources at your finger tips to find out what your next move can be. As noted, talk to people and keep an open mind. You also can find opportunities in unlikely or unrelated places–it’s just the case of you growing and maintaining your network!
And remember to challenge yourself and unlock opportunities outside your comfort zone. Connect with people on the same wavelengths and find out how you can benefit from each others network, experience and skillsets. Be open. Have fun. And always be sure to seize opportunities (no matter how small) that can help you grow professionally.
