Knobull Helps Students Build A Career Backup Plan

By: Knobull
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - June 2, 2023 - PRLog -- "Businesses go through cycles, market conditions, economies, and sometimes a new person at the top comes in and wants to change everything," says Lynn Bentley , CEO of Knobull, an Academic Search Engine with learning/career development support.

1. Build a Strong Network

"When executives ask for my help to get their next job, the first question I ask them is, 'How strong is your network outside of the four walls where you work?"

Networking requires being willing to ask people you know to connect you with people they know. While it comes naturally to some people, it can feel draining.

You're asking for help, and the vast majority of people will want to help you. The best time to network is when you don't need to. Networking is the proactive backup plan that people should be creating.

2. Know Your Motivators

Creating a backup plan requires knowing what drives your career. Why How We Work Matters More Than Ever.

For example, it could be the company, which is when you love your workplace and would do anything to see it succeed. You may also be driven by craft.

3. Keep an Updated Résumé

According to a recent survey by the résumé-writing service JobStars, most professionals don't update their résumé until they need to use it. It's best to schedule in regular updates by tapping this label on the Knobull homepage.

If you haven't updated your résumé since you landed your current job, now's the time to incorporate those details.

4. Consider Transferrable Skills

Career ladders look different today. Instead of following a traditional path within a company or industry, more people are focusing on more continuous improvement of their capabilities, skill sets, and experiences, by requesting this Guide at the Knobull Contact page.

For example, someone who works in a fast-paced environment in the hospitality field likely has honed good customer service and multitasking skills developed by taking an edX course found on the Knobull homepage.

Understanding your skill sets can also help you identify areas for improvement. This process will allow you to identify any skill gaps you need to fill.

5. Envision Yourself in the Future

Whether you're creating Plan A or Plan B, make sure to reflect on the life you are trying to build and where you want to be five or 10 years from now.

By looking at three to five alternatives to your current job together, you can examine which of them will allow you the best chances.

"Reverse engineering your life based on how you want it to look at some point in the future is vital step that will move you a step in the right direction, instead of creating a detour away from the life you want", says Bentley.
