  1. Leverage online resources -- the internet is made up of a plethora of knowledge and resources! Take advantage of free webinars or courses to learn more about a specific industry or role. There are also several options online where you can earn a free certification. 
  2. Update your resume -- take some time to sit down and take a hard look at your resume. When was the last time you updated it? Chances are, you have a lot to add and showcase!  
  3. Grow your network -- virtual coffee anyone? Just because you're working at home, doesn't mean you can't continue to build your network. Don't be afraid to connect with people on LinkedIn or engage with thought leaders. 
  4. Read industry news -- sign up for the newsletters to receive the latest trends in your space. Follow trail blazers on their social platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Medium, and Clubhouse.
  5. Start where you are -- increase your visibility in your current role by taking on the new project at work and present new ideas to your manager. The continuous hard work does not go unnoticed!
