Leave no stone unturned, no road unexplored. Preparation, persistence, and enthusiasm are important keys to finding a job. Education and training also play a vital role. Remember:
If you're looking for new opportunities, you'll want to know how your current skills match up with employer requirements in your area of interest. If you need more training or education, you'll want to identify institutions or programs that have what you're seeking and check their eligibility requirements, training costs, and available financial assistance.
How Do I Get Started?
