Dust Off Your LInkedIn Profile

As we begin to exit the SAH and WFH COVID-19 situation, it’s time to shift our mindset from stressing about the things we can't do, to taking control and focus on the things WE CAN DO.  

As you restart your job search, reach out for assistance- in times of uncertainty, returning to experiences that grounded you are helpful.
