Remember the saying, if you don’t know where you want to go, any road will take you there. So, if you’re not sure, take an assessment. Stop. Don’t turn up your nose. Find one. Answer the questions correctly and it will reveal different occupations and/or direction you can take to get you on your path of interest. For example, if you Caper and like helping people, you might be suitable to become a health professional. Look at the qualifications needed.

The Grit. The Grind. The Search. Consider all your options then select one and take the necessary steps to get you where you want to go.
If you are already on the path; know where you want to go, and have the qualifications, then start your search. Look on different job search medium. Find out the salary paid, what the job fully entails, then apply.
But first! Make sure that resume is up to par. If you’re in the creative industry make sure you start a website or blog to show your work. Some employers won’t even consider you if you are not able to show samples of your work. So, find a home online (i.e. your website) and get active.
Next, write that cover letter that will show that you have actually read what the job entails. I have been floored by people who have applied to jobs that I have advertised on LinkedIn and other medium and it shows that they have not even read the job requirements to see if they meet the criteria. Let me hasten to say that sometimes you really do not meet the criteria, but I will encourage you to still apply. Sell yourself through the cover letter. Show why you would be eligible for the job though you have no experience. Who knows you may still be hired because of your attitude! Because of your potential and initiative. Take the time to share how you would apply your current skills to the job.
