How to Land a Great Job in 2021

Well, we made it through 2020. Last year brought significant changes to the lives of many people. Many people lost jobs or had to re-evaluate their careers. And now that the new year is in full swing, many people are looking for a fresh start. Finding a new job this year may give you the brighter future that you’re looking for. Here are some helpful tips on how to land a great job in 2021.

#1: Don’t be afraid to take risks.

If last year has taught us anything, it’s that you can never fully plan for what might be in store. This is especially true regarding your career and it’s an important lesson that you can take into your job hunt. The economy is still recovering from the coronavirus fallout and it’s no secret that it’s still a very difficult time for the world right now. But that isn’t a reason to stay stagnant or stay in a job that you’re incredibly unhappy in.

It can be difficult to take risks – especially in a time of uncertainty – but now could be a great time to take the leap into a new career role. You owe it to yourself to be happy and find a job that utilizes the gifts, talents, and experience that you have. Be open to the possibility of finding a great position, even if it pushes you out of your comfort zone a bit. The sooner you start looking, the better chance you have to find a job that is perfect for you.

#2: Invest in yourself.

If you are looking to make a job change, knowing your value and investing in that is key. That might mean taking some extra classes to bulk up your knowledge. Maybe it means completing some additional certifications to make your resume stand out even more. What aspirations do you have for your career and what action items can you complete to help get you there?

#3: Re-evaluate your resume.

Polish up your resume. Make sure everything is accurate and up to date. Consider contacting the people on your reference list to make sure they are still okay with being a reference for you. Ensure there are no typos or grammatical mistakes on the resume, too. Add volunteer work, completed job-specific courses, trainings, or certifications that you’ve completed, too. Anything that you have done to benefit yourself or your community is worthy of stating.
