Always keep yourself informed and updated. Always take time to learn. Take crash courses, get certifications, read books and magazines, or study online tutorials, ebooks, and blogs. Do some volunteer work. It would benefit you and your employer since you can gain valuable work experience while your employer can get the job done for free. Every experience counts. It can add up to your resume as well. Do freelance or part-time work to earn money until you finally find a regular job. Lastly, enjoy your time off and spend time with family and friends because soon, you'll be busy at work.
