3 Key Points:
Take time to set your goals (long term or short term), come up with a plan, stick to it and keep making applicable adjustments.
When looking at the right company or industry, take a look at where you are, consider the worst-case and best-case scenario, and then decide if this is the industry that you want to work with long term.
Bolster your resume by getting all certifications that you need in areas that you want to go. Make your network by joining virtual events or connecting through LinkedIn. Read books, and practice your soft skills.
