Not quitting your current job is smart because finding a new job is always easier while you are employed.
Getting your resume professionally tweaked was also smart.
Here are a couple of suggestions you may not have yet considered:
1. Hire a head-hunter.
Many firms that perform a job search for you do not require up-front payment and get re - imburst from a percentage of your paycheck after finding you your dream job.
2. Update your skills
Working a dead-end job can be a real buzzkill, but what’s worse is moving from one dead-end job into another!
Instead, look into getting training you need to move into a job that you will enjoy and find fulfilling. There’s vocational training, community college, and online schools that offer certificates, degrees, nano-degress, etc.
3. Start your own business
Starting your own business can be risky as well as expensive, but if you have a solid plan and sufficient drive being your own boss might be exactly what the doctor ordered.
People make fortunes starting their own business in roofing, flooring, painting, sheet-rock work, installing doors/windows, french drains, restaurants, etc.
If you truly want to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT now is the time to put your imagination to use!
