Maintain your network

Sometimes, opportunities arise due to some contact. To stay updated, keep developing your professional network.

Your reputation will be key when opportunities arise inside or outside the company.
Keeping an open mind and being flexible when it comes to work is the key to opening a world of career opportunities for you. 

Keep updating your resume

Build a good resume. A financial profile resume should be clear, concise and easy to read. Update it with concrete examples of your achievements. Highlight and quantify your achievements, provide numbers to tell your story. To make your resume stand out from other applicants never forget that you should tailor it specifically to each of the offers you are applying for. And don't include details of work that is more than 10 years old.
Also pay special attention to your social media profiles, namely on the world's largest professional network, Linkedin. Find out how you can improve and achieve a champion profile on this network.
