It is time to nail your CV.
Probably there is some dust on your CV. Take a look at the latest trends and create a masterpiece for your job search. We recommend you using tools like Canva, Photoshop or any other software to make a different and remarkable CV.
Consider also creating extra material as a Video Curriculum, a Cover Letter or a Portfolio.
Analyze the Past. Focus on the Future.
Sit down and make a summary of all you have achieved during the past years of experience. Focus on what you do not want to do anymore and try to remember what you enjoyed the most.
Try to identify your strengths and your passions. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Enjoy your free time.

Just remember to pay attention to your entertainment time. Be smart, do whatever makes you think more clearly.
Enjoy binging Harry Potter to entertain yourself, but to get useful insight make use of the vast amount of audiovisual material on the internet that will help you in your search. Documentaries, TED Talks and even some movies or series are very good ideas to reflect on your career. For example, The Intern, definitely a good movie to watch!
Reading always will be helpful.
Search for some books, there are very good reads that you can enjoy while you learn about yourself better. The Obstacle is The Way is highly recommended!
Consider launching something.
