A while ago, I decided to replant an oxygen plant that my wife had purchased for me into a larger pot. She had bought me a nice bag of potting soil and I found a large plant pot to place the plant in. As I gently removed the plant from its old container, I noticed that my plant had become root bound, meaning the roots had become compacted, so the plant could not have reached its fullest potential in size and sturdiness.

Do you remember buying that expensive all-cotton resume paper to print out your new, precisely formatted masterpiece of a resume? How about that nice bundle of manila envelopes and a book of stamps to go with that pricey ream? And then mailing them all out to every company in the local yellow pages? In the age of the internet, it's hard to imagine that this was the norm not long ago.
Snorkeling wasn't an activity that I enjoyed. In fact, I always avoided it whenever the opportunity was presented. I am not talking about scuba diving. I am talking about snorkeling. You know, the mask, the mouthpiece, the flippers and all that is involved in the activity. I hated it.

A career transition can be challenging. Your resume can help to bridge the gap between your current experiences and your desired career. But, how can you craft your resume so that it seamlessly transitions you from one industry to another? Take it one step at a time. Here are a few steps to help you get started.
Landing a great job is more than just a job search; it's also about finding a work environment that's right for you. Gain a better understanding of companies by searching and browsing Company Profiles on JobsInME.com.
Here are three ways to do so:
1. Perform a Company Search
At the top of the page, locate the gray Search bar. On the right, click on Other Search Options, and then select Company Search from the drop down list.
It pays to stick around. Whether you are seeking increased exposure as a job seeker, looking for a new opportunity or developing further expertise in your field, a key factor to successfully establishing social media credibility is maintaining a constant, consistent presence.
My advice is the same for anyone on social media: set some goals moving forward and create a simple schedule to lean on. Plan ahead and stick to your weekly "to do" list.
With time, everything changes, including how we look for career opportunities.
You may still have to bring a small stack of resumes to a job fair, but it's not just about handing them out. Some employers at job fairs aren't even currently hiring. What are they doing at the job fair, you ask? They could be doing any number of things, including:
Looking for future leaders
Meeting possible candidates
Having conversations that could lead to a hire later on
Seeking a certain skill set or interest level
Looking for "good fit" candidates
