Research your interests.
Connect with people in the field you would like to pursue and stay connected.
Obtain the education piece.
Build a portfolio.
Refine your resume and LinkedIn profile.
Set daily alerts on LinkedIn and Glassdoor.
Enjoy the struggle of the process.

Reflect on gaps.
Take the time to pursue passion projects.
Stay committed to the goal.
