Your Job Search is an Investment • Putting smart money into your job search is an investment, not an expense. • Your job search is an investment--of effort, time, and, yes, dollars. • Where do you put those dollars, and how do you account for them? Image courtesy of / anna langova

Invest in Your Career Persona • Wardrobe. – Make sure that you dress the part of the role you want, not the role you have. • Conservative presentation. – Always dress and groom to a higher standard for your interviews and networking events, even if your target environment is relaxed and hip. • Clean car. – Unclutter your car and get it a good vacuum. Rumors also circulate that during your interview someone is looking at the condition of your car, so don’t let them see what you don’t want them to. Image courtesy of stockimages /

Invest in Your Career Portfolio • Upgraded LinkedIn account. – You don’t need to advertise that you’re a job seeker, but there are good reasons to upgrade and take advantage of the benefits that LinkedIn offers. • Refreshed LinkedIn profile. – Your LinkedIn profile is the first place people look to find out more about you - hire an expert. • Career coaching. – Hire a certified executive resume writer and executive career coach to help steer you in the right direction.

Invest in yourself • Don’t always go with the least expensive options, as the return might not be what you need. • Judge costs accordingly, and know that every cent you wisely invest into your job search will surely give you profitable dividends in the form of a rewarding career.
