There is always a first step, but where that last step takes you is just as important. However, in today’s topic, where you park your car may be a better term. In many of our classes, we have discussed expanding your job search circle. For example, take a map and place your finger at a spot where you would like to work. Second, take a pen or pencil and draw a circle around your finger as big or as small as you would be willing to travel outside of the area covered by your finger. This will determine how far you are willing to travel for work and it will multiply your possibilities of finding a job. For many of you, travel and relocating are not a possibility due to a newly bought home, family, childrens’ schools, etc. We understand this and have no problems searching for a position that suits your preferred location but is there anything that could change your mind? For those of you who are able to ‘expand your horizons,’ tell us how big or little your circle is.
