Every journey starts with making decisions and planning. Your career and job search should be no different. The first important step you must take when looking for a new job is to know yourself.
Recognize your own strengths and weaknesses and what you are looking for in a career. This will help you have a better chance of finding your perfect job.
Take a good look at yourself and understand your personality, values and what drives you. The better you know yourself and your likes, dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, the better your chances are of finding a job that is a right match for you.
