  1. Keep looking for new jobs even if you're happy

    Instead of scrambling to find a new job only when you've become miserable at work, keep an eye out for new opportunities even when you're happy with your employer, advises Vicki Salemi. You're in a position of power when you're happy in your current role, and you can see what other opportunities are available without the pressure of needing to find a job quickly, she writes.

  2. Be picky about the skills you list on your resume

    While it's important to emphasize relevant skills on your resume, it's better to leave basic computer skills and languages that you haven't studied in years off, writes Emily Moore. Be careful about listing soft skills, too, as it's best to cite specific accomplishments instead of being vague about skills such as "leadership" or "multitasking." Glassdoor (9/21)
