Did you know that only 27% of college graduates enter a job in their field of study? And that there are many jobs out there that don't require a 4-year degree or an associate's degree? One of the biggest first steps you can take in your job search is to boost your brain power in every possible way.

Possible brain-sharpening activities include: -learning a new language (you can do this for free using duolingo.com!) -teaching yourself to write with your other hand -doing logic puzzles, crossword puzzles, sudoku, or other problem-solving games -taking a power nap! -keeping a journal -visiting a museum -trying to mentally estimate the passage of time -meditating -doing one thing at a time (quit multitasking!) -developing your reading skill -collecting quotes -debating! defend an argument, then try taking the opposite side

Great list! I especially like the ideas of learning a new language. That is a great way to expand your language. Adding the third only increases that. Why be bilingual when you can be trilingual?

I also really like the suggestion to keep a journal. That really is a great way to boost the brain.

Great post!

To get a job you may not have “traditional” experience for, I also think following companies in your desired field and making professional connections at events or even amongst family/friends can help a lot too!
