Searching for a new job after cancer can be scary, but these tips from Julie Jansen can help.
Having a plan in place before you start your job search will help build your confidence and manage your search. Before you start, take a personal inventory and decide what you want to do. Consider if it’s a time to change career paths. Update your resume and make sure to highlight your accomplishments. Use technical keywords to help your resume get noticed. Update your LinkedIn account, especially your Profile and the Skills and Endorsements section. Once you get an interview, take the time to prepare thoroughly. Write up and rehearse a brief explanation about any gaps in your work history. Remember that you are not obligated to disclose that you had cancer.
