If we are looking to advance our careers, reinvention is a must. It’s not what you think it is if you’re thinking makeover (although sometimes it is). Your reinvention efforts must fit and deliver what the employer’s need. I talk about it in more detail with Anthony Quinones.
What does reinvention mean for your career?

Here are highlights of our conversation on reinvention:
- People used to look at reinvention as a cool and nice thing, but now it’s a necessity
- New opportunities are now coming through temp work, contracts, and volunteering
- Relationships are key to starting the reinvention process
- 62% are finding jobs through referral
- More job stability from the job search process from relationships than applying online
- Employers trust a new hire who was referred by a current employee than a new hire who applied online
- Trust is a key benefit from an employee referral
- Saves money for the company
- Your references help embed trust
- Six types of key relationships: Friends, family, coworkers, ex-classmates, associations, people you know of (pyko or pee-co)
