Ep 267 Congratulations! You’ve landed your next position. When should you start looking for your next job?
Congratulations! You've got your next job. You can take a deep breath. Exhale. Relax. You've landed.
I don't want you to start resting on your laurels because that is the mistake too many job hunters make.
You see, your next job search begins today. Again, I want you to hear this. Your next job search begins today. That doesn't mean you're going to change organizations. You may start thinking about what the next position is within your current organization you want to move up to, what you need to know and learn, who you need to connect with in the organization to become known as someone who they would be interested in.
Don't just rest on your laurels. Start building your network in your new firm and outside your new firm to target people who would be useful to you, to learn the things that you don't know in order to be qualified for that next position.
At the end of the day, too many people sit back, relax and lurch from job search to job search based upon the economy, whether they've been laid off, whether they are suddenly angry at their boss... Bad mistake.
Put yourself in the position to be found. Start looking for that next job and start learning what you need to know in order to be qualified for that next job. Network with the people who can help you find that next job or would be in the position to hire you for that next job and with building those relationships.
