It's soon to be a new year so why not get a fresh start on your job search.
Alan Fine, author of "You Already Know How to be Great," is sharing four steps to re-energizing your job search.
1. Define a Goal: It has to be specific, measurable, realistic and time-phased. Instead of "I want to find a new job," say "I want to generate one new job lead per week, between now and January 1st."
2. Acknowledge the Reality: Review what's happening right now, what you've tried (and the results), and the circumstances and challenges standing in your way. Be honest.
3. Brainstorm Options: In a perfect world, what could I do? Put everything on the table, suspending judgment until you've explored all ideas.
4. Choose a Way Forward: Start to narrow down your options, to choose the best action to take. And like your goal, make sure it's specific, measurable, realistic and time-phased. You should walk away with a clear plan of action that you can begin immediately.
"You Already Know How to be Great" is a New York Times bestselling book that helps people achieve their goals through a simple, repeatable process called the InsideOut method. For more information visit www.alan-fine.com .
