Five Tips to Make Your Career Blossom

Actively managing your career is difficult. Here are five tips to make it easier:

  1. Update your resume regularly on NAHU's Career Center. If it’s been longer than a year, it’s been too long!
  2. Start a “Win List” and record all your professional “wins” in one area so you can refer back to them easily.
  3. Visit NAHU's Career Center regularly to understand the employment marketplace and what positions are in demand.
  4. Set a goal to become an expert in a new skill and map out how you will achieve that goal.
  5. Take the time to pat yourself on the back for your accomplishments.
