  2. How to utilize our existing network and also expand the same by connecting with people who can add value to our career growth.
  3. Efficiently use all the available virtual platforms to create an impact leading to personal branding.
  4. Look for fresh new opportunities with a creative bent of mind, instead of getting lost amidst the clutter – the “Blue Ocean” concept.
  5. Seek the right kind of mentorship/coaching and avoid any off the shelf career coaching floating in the market these days.
