Many people I talk to think LinkedIn is primarily for job seekers or recruiters but there are so many other ways to use the site. I use it to search for information and articles, I do research on companies, I find information about people I am networking with and I also use the Groups feature to stay in close contact with other professionals with similar interests.
According to the 2012 Workforce Mobility Survey, “Two factors are most likely to increase a candidate’s willingness to relocate- higher salary (reported by 82% of HR professionals) and career advancement (reported by 79%). Three factors are most likely to limit or restrict willingness to relocate: spousal employment situation (80%), children’s plans/ schools (72%), and selling a home/ mortgage (69%).
Make sure that at a minimum, your recruiters are sharing their job openings on Twitter.
Think back to when you first chose your career. How did you decide what you wanted to do with your life? Many people chose something they could be passionate about. Even though it’s just a job, a means to an end, it’s was much more meaningful if you chose a career you were excited about.
That is why my focus is on work/life unity.
Unity, or “wholeness”, takes into consideration that I am made up of all these roles. How much time I spend on each one in a given day varies from day to day, and that is what works for me. So, how have I made it work? Three words: flexibility, sacrifice, and decisiveness.
