If you consider yourself indispensable professional who knows everything and knows - you might not even take the job. Inflated self-esteem and ambition - well, but employers need people who will never rest on their laurels. Think about who will prefer: a man who is constantly learning something new or special that tells the story of its merits, without confirming them, in fact.
Gone are the days when the work was taken after studying the summary. Now you need to go through a bunch of tests, based on which the HR manager concludes. So, for example, a large company asked candidates three questions. How to put a giraffe (or other little creatures) in the refrigerator. How to put the elephant? And if there is a collection of animals who exactly it will not come? In the first case, it turns out, if a person is able to think outside the box in the second - it is logical, in the third - whether he has a good memory.
Not necessarily you will be asked exactly the same questions at the interview. But you must be prepared for the fact that on your resume does not even take a look, and asked to tell you to do something unusual. Daily enhancing their knowledge, solve puzzles and crossword puzzles, play chess, read the news (but not the yellow press). In the future, it is useful to you.

Begin to communicate with successful people who hold good positions. No wonder they say that the hand of the hand warm. It is not sad, but in our world of communication - that's all. Without them you have to sit in the position of secretary for another five years. And so (under the patronage of the familiar businessman or official) you will be charged once the head of the department.
Ideally, if you can find someone who was able to achieve success in the area in which you want to realize their potential. Believe me, he will teach you a lot, if you see in your eyes desire. The main thing - do not try to look better than it is. Otherwise, the result will be totally opposite one.
Where to find the connection? At the seminars, conferences and meetings. Successful people do not miss the chance to learn something new, expand the world and to find friends who think as they do. But be careful! Going to try to look respectable. It's like a social club - here let only those who meet all the requirements and standards. If you come in the old suit, will answer at random, will begin to stick to all the issues, you just put out the door.
Start reading books
All successful and formed the person read a lot. They try to learn everything and not only with regard to specialization. Classical economics, politics, philosophy, psychology - they are interested in many things. To say: "I want to change themselves and their lives for the better." We must act. Any information can be useful in life. In addition, people who have read a thousand books, certainly knows how to express their thoughts, competently construct sentences, does not make mistakes when writing.
Learning foreign languages
"How many languages do you know, so many times you are a man," - Anton Chekhov. Nowadays, in addition to Russian, you must possess at least English. If you are able to express themselves freely in German, French, Spanish or Italian, you will prefer first. You want to change the life: to find a prestigious post, to go abroad, etc.
So, for this start to watch movies without translation, read books and magazines in the foreign language. But do not get carried away with self-instruction. If there is no practice, the theory is not useful. You can not utter even the most ordinary phrases. Lots of you have learned, it's spelling.
