After numerous efforts to get a job in these interesting times, you can develop yourself and become a moneymaker. You don't have to rely on anyone to survive anymore but become a job creator. These are steps to take if you don't want to be jobless again.


It's important you master skills after making so much effort to get your desired job but it's not forthcoming. To be realistic, you need to put in the effort to achieve the desired result. You need to dedicate hours, days, months, and years to that particular skill. You need to have the drive, self-discipline, and high-level focus in that field. You need to set goals, strategies, focus on learning and building the skill. Find ways to measure your progress to your set goal for your skill. To master the skills needed in the marketplace, get a mentor to help and guide you, measure your growth rate to your set goal of where you plan to be. This will help you improve your skills and become better.


You need to build a portfolio that will help you capture the marketplace and increase your market value. In building your portfolio, you need to start small by taking small jobs to polish your skill and become better and not for the money at the moment.Take the jobs to add to your portfolio ahead of the big job to show how good you are and how well you have improved. Build your portfolio for a larger audience to see your works and attract more customers. As you build your portfolio, communicate your brand to entice clients to work with you. You need to build your portfolio because clients want to see your experience, unique work that will solve or meet their business problems. Have a showcase of your works to capture the marketplace.


You need to become visible to the marketplace by showcasing your skills. The marketplace will add to the development and improvement of what you do. Being open to the marketplace opens doors of opportunities of different kinds and connect you to people. Market place favours those with skills to create and add value, people who can get results with available tools and resources. Your skills must be valuable and productive in the marketplace to capture the market. The marketplace is competitive with people in your field but develops yourself to have a competitive advantage over others.

The simple approach to this is every day or twice a week, etc. Reach out to one person whose work you find interesting or in your field. Focus on connecting and reaching out to the right people because they probably have people trying to reach out all the time. Networking will not only help you land a job faster, but it will give you a competitive edge with your skills. Networking will help you develop and improve your skill set, stay on top of the latest trends in your industry, keep a pulse on the job market, meet prospective mentors, partners, and clients, and gain access to the necessary resources that will foster your skill development.
