When you are out looking for a new job or developing your career what is the key factor that determines your success?

….It’s you!

You might be thinking: yes, of course it is! But think about it a little deeper for a moment. Sometimes you are consumed by trying to find a job and lose focus of YOU. We try to get a good resume done, prep for interviews, network, update our LinkedIn profile…we do a million things before we take a few moments to find out what we really want! If you can take some time to do a bit more research and introspective you may come up with some tough decisions and some insights.

Maybe the job search isn’t going well not because for your lack of trying…maybe you simply don’t want to be in that field or particular position any longer. That’s why you are the most important factor in a successful job search. Thinking about yourself and taking time to reassess your job, career and life can mean the difference of having an excellent quality of life and continuing down a path you aren’t passionate about.
