Welcome to 2018. Got plans? Maybe a promotion? Or a new job all together?

It can be overwhelming to even think about. Who to talk to? Where to look? Who would make good references? Where the heck is your resume? Ack!!

Looking for a job can be a full time job. Looking for a job when you have a job is tricky. Both require planning and commitment.

Random job seeking can work. We all know someone who met a guy and got hired in five minutes. But let’s face it, that generally only happens in the movies to people who are far better looking than us.

Like any other goal, you need to make a plan and break out the steps with a timeline. Also, like any plan, you need to be prepared for set backs and derailers.

In keeping with this idea, I have made a plan for 2018 for this blog. I will be walking through the process of getting a new gig step by step, week by week.


Oh sure, there will still be posts with random thoughts and comments on the world of work. There is too much ridiculousness to close that door, but the focus will be in the “job journey” and how to keep driving in the right direction.

If you want to get a head start on next week, see if you can remember the last time you updated your resume and where you put it.

Good luck!
