Ladies and Gentlemen: Fasten your Seatbelts on the Flight to a New Job in 2021!

Unemployment was one of the factors that affected several families in 2020 due to the pandemic crisis. Unemployment creates anxiety, affects self-confidence, and puts the unemployed and their families in a position of discomfort and insecurity.

So here are some suggestions to help you win and be hired in 2021. 

1 – Include in your reflections about 2020 an analysis of what you accomplished professionally – Think about the value of what you did as a professional and how you impacted the company where you worked. Extend that process to all your professional history. Make a career inventory recording all your successes and results. Get to know yourself as a professional. Identify your differential and the best you have to offer to the market. It goes for all the professionals, not only the ones job seeking. It is paramount to keep your career inventory up-to-date with your most recent success stories. It helps you to market yourself because it defines your proposition of value. This practice helps you to clarify why you are a good professional and how you achieved success in what you did. It makes it possible to clearly articulate the message you are going to convey to the recruiter or your boss: “It is worth it to hire or promote me for this, this, and this reason. I produced the results X, Y, and Z!”

2 – Search for professional guidance to write your résumé – Nowadays, the expectations for résumés are pretty different from those of 20 years ago.
