How to Invest in Yourself!

Michigan’s economy is rebounding and now is a great time to invest in your future. For job seekers looking to boost their resumes, there are many options. For people who have found themselves stuck in a dead-end job or simply have been waiting for the right time to continue their education, now is the time.

Here are three ways to invest in yourself:

1. Get Trained and Certified. Short-term training programs and certifications can jumpstart your career search in a matter of months or even weeks.

2. Volunteer. Look for volunteer opportunities that relate to your career aspirations. These experiences look great on resumes.

3. Attend Networking Events. We all know that often times who you know is just as important as what you know.
