Use the long Labor Day weekend to outshine other job searchers

Labor Day, isn’t just a 3-day weekend. It’s a celebration of the contributions all workers have made in growing the prosperity of our nation, economy and wellbeing of all those who call it home. However, there’s 1,000’s of people who get up every day and trudge off to a job they hate. They sit at a desk knowing there’s no chance for advancement. They feel unappreciated and under valued.

If you want more out of your work life, this weekend is the perfect time to take action. While everyone is bingeing Netflix, or overindulging at neighborhood BBQ’s, you can be on the way to finding a career that improves your financial situation and offers you a chance to use your skills and talents.

So Grab your tablet or laptop and spend some time assessing what it is about your career you enjoy and what you don’t. Think about which of your skills provide you the most satisfaction. Think about careers that give you the opportunity to use them and also give you an environment you can continue to grow.

Don’t forget about updating your LinkedIn profile. Use this weekend to contact recruiters and build your network.
