SOKY Jobs Toolbox: Be On 24/7

You are seeking employment. The inevitable job search…it’s frustrating. I know–I’ve been here a time or two myself. Maybe you have a job already but are looking for a better opportunity, a career with growth potential. Many of you have just graduated and are looking for your first real job. Some of you have lost your job and are picking up the pieces to seek a better future.

No matter what your situation may be, remember this: Be on your A game at all times. You never know who you may meet or who might be able to help. Getting a great job requires expert attention to detail. No matter your experience, skill level, or education, how you are perceived is critical to landing your dream job.

It’s a small world out there, and word of mouth will make or break your reputation. Always make sure you project professionalism at work as well as when you are “off the clock.” When it comes to social media profiles, clean it up. Prospective employers will definitely be looking. Change every profile picture to the most professional headshot you have. If you don’t have a recent photo, put on your church clothes, stand by a tree and ask a friend to take one. No matter where you go, who you interact with or what you’re doing online, make sure you are prepared to be seen and heard.

Most importantly know this: the same God who created the heavens and the earth created you. He loves you and has an incredible plan for your life.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. -Ephesians 2:10
