Before you begin

Many people looking for a new job do not take the time to examine their skills and long-term goals before applying for new opportunities. This lack of focus can adversely affect the chances of getting a desired offer.  Before applying, look carefully at your resume. Take note of what you have accomplished in three broad areas—leadership, teamwork and acquired knowledge. The first two are easy to understand. The last pertains to specific skills you have acquired that set you apart from the rest. This could include wine knowledge, sales techniques, computer skills or distributor management.  After this review is finished, reflect on what you want to accomplish in your professional life. Then compare that to what you have learned so far. Be realistic. Decide what you need to learn to get where you want to go professionally. Reduce these down to a plan of action—a map, if you will, of what steps you need to take to get to that goal. Only apply for positions that keep you on or very near your map. Leverage your success in one position up to the next step. Look to work for organizations that can internally give you room to grow and learn. This process will help you get the offer  you are seeking, and to have a very productive long-term career.
