  1. Sell your “soft” skills. At the most basic level, your skills are what you have to offer. What they call “soft skills” are simply your ability to communicate, speak, write, and present ideas.
  2. Add value. Besides being a good communicator, it’s important to contribute. Adding value can be different for every kind of job. First, it’s important to gain experience. Doing something new while working in an office, and with other people is a great first step. If you can afford to, volunteering or interning can also be great opportunities to learn about a field that interests you.
  3. Be resourceful. Education and experience can prepare you for creating your next job. Check out our resources on entrepreneurship and remember that innovation isn’t exclusively high-tech.
