The First Step Is Job Searching

First and foremost, the most important way to be successful in your career is to job search even if you’re not looking for a job! Ways to do this are to use websites like Indeed or LinkedIn. The reason I say to search for jobs even though you may not particularly be looking for a job is because you will never know when your perfect opportunity may present itself to you. You may be happy at your job, but that next step up that you are qualified for may just be sitting there waiting for you.

As I searched on both LinkedIn and Indeed, I was able to jobs that I would not only may want to apply for now (and one that I am going to actually apply for later tonight) but also some jobs that I may want to keep in mind (or similar ones) as I get more experience and want to enter a more permanent role.

When searching I used key terms that interested me in a job. I also kept an eye on the technical qualifications, being that my career field is very tech based. After all my research here are 5 (out of the many) positions that I would consider applying for now or at some point during my career.
