1) Be curious. Ask questions. Talk to people you meet about their work, how they found their jobs and the advantages and drawbacks they see in their fields.


2) Remain flexible. Even though you've developed a clear vision about where you're going and how you'll get there, be ready to change direction if a unique opportunity comes along.


3) Network. Most people find their jobs through informal contacts. Prepare a short "commercial" about your goals and then involve everyone you know in your job search.


4) Toss the tunnel vision. Consider jobs you've never done. Look outside your comfort zone for jobs to help you stretch your abilities Identify transferable skills and practice describing them to an employer.
