It is very rare good opportunities will present themselves to you without some effort on your part. You could have some excellent skills, but how will anyone know about them? How ill prospective employers know you are around and willing to take on new challenges? You have to make them aware of your presence and what you are capable of.

Let People Know

You need to let people know you are around and what your skills are if you want to be a success in work and business. If they need someone that can deal with the things you can they will then know who to call. Good job opportunities are often found this way because of the hassle of advertising and interviewing lots of prospective candidates. Why bother with all that if they are aware of someone that can do the job perfectly well.

Try Different Things

Everyone is comfortable doing the tasks they know best, but to open up more opportunities you need to try different things and build on the qualifications you already have. For instance, completing an online RN to BSN course would allow you to grow in the nursing profession.  Earning an online degree in accounting would let you be more than a bookkeeper.

Or you can add totally new skills that are unrelated to what you already do. You may be surprised how many employers like the fact that you have learned how to do things that many people would consider a hobby, such as playing a musical instrument or sculpture. Let them know that this is something you have only just acquired knowledge in, as this shows you have self-discipline, and that is always good for any prospective new boss to see.

Record Your Successes

Records all your successes in one place, together with all your skills and accomplishments. Employers do look at sites such as LinkedIn to find if there is someone that would fit the role they have, and it is worth selling yourself in these types of social media sites.

You could also have an online resume that you can quickly direct people to. Make sure you always keep it updated so that everything they need to know about you is in one place.

Give Out Good Vibes

When others something you admire, make sure you praise them. Good vibes will always come back to you, and if you are always positive, people will be positive back.  Negativity should be something you know nothing about.

It could be that you admire a blog or that a work colleague makes a really good effort with some task. Just let them know that you have noticed, and they will return the compliment when the time comes.

The World Of Work

You have to remember that in the world of work that are many people chasing every job. You need to try and make sure that your skills and attributes are seen in as many places as possible so that you stand a bigger chance of being successful when an opportunity presents itself.
