Research shows hiring is happening across the board, including in the creative industry. Are you well positioned to take advantage of the opportunities before you? In this video, TCG executive director Diane Domeyer shows you how to amp up your job prospects.
Let's be honest. We're now nearly a quarter of the way through the year and many of us have long forgotten the career goals we made for 2015 – or put them on the back burner to attend to deadlines and heavy workloads. It's just too easy to slip back into old routines and get caught up in the hubbub at work.
But now is the perfect time to revisit your professional resolutions – and make new ones. The recent jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the U.S. economy added 295,000 jobs in February, building on January's strong jobs report. And companies are paying top dollar to recruit and retain creative professionals with in-demand skills.
Are you doing all you can to improve your marketability? Or have you become complacent at work or in your job search? If you have even the smallest sliver of doubt, consider these eight tips from TCG executive director Diane Domeyer for improving your job prospects. Tackle one or a few – it's never too late to refocus on your career goals.
