  • 9. Do’s and Don’ts Life is a journey. This is a time in your life to grow, learn, help, develop, and strengthen your relationship with God. Use your time wisely and make sure when you look back, it was time well spent. Value and appreciate it for what it is. It’s a season of change, and when you get a job, you’ll want to look back and realize all the wonderful things that you gained from being in career transition.
