YOU are the product that you are trying to sell your next company. Take care of the product. Take care of yourself. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. Focus on building positive energy.
Do all the things that you like to do. Skip the things that you don't. This will also build positive energy.
Use your skills, awesomeness, and positive energy to maximize your influence over all those things that are neither completely inside or outside of your control.
Volunteer to assist others, and actually do it.
Take charge of your job search.
You are your own best career manager, especially when you are looking for a job.
Remember - excellence can start anywhere and radiate out. Be excellent.
If you made it this far, congrats. I did not mean for this to turn into a 9-part post, but I hope at least one person out there got some help in their job search from it.
