There are so many jobs which are disappearing to automation. You need to keep up on how automation could affect you and your skill set. This requires doing some research on a regular basis. If you are in a field or hold a skill set that is in danger of being lost to automation, consider further job training. You need a good, solid skill set that is relevant to today's market. 

Smart Phones Are Important

If you haven't already evolved into the smart phone era, you might want to consider doing so soon. Having access to your email and job search sites even when you are away from your computer is practically a must today. The job market is very competitive. You can't afford to let an email sit and wait for hours or days before checking it. Upgrading to a smart phone will allow you the ability to check email, communicate with potential employers and get live updates on new job postings.

You can't afford to slack on resumes, job skill training, or networking. Now is the time to kick your efforts into high gear. 

2020 could be the year you land your dream job. Stay mindful of these job search trends as you move forward with your career goals.
