Whether you are actively looking, or a so-called "passive candidate", keep reading this 7-article dossier and discover a world of new opportunities — one of which could be your dream job !

Part 1: Navigating the job search during the talent shortage

Part 2: Put an emphasis on soft skills and accomplishments.

Part 3: Think beyond the interview.

Part 4: Make yourself visible.

Part 5: Thinking about a new start with an old company?

Part 6: Consider the non-financial incentives of making a move.

Moving on to new opportunities—even if they're in old, familiar places—isn't always about getting more money, but about finding a job that is better suited to your skills, your interests and your life. While your salary is obviously important, money is not the only key to workplace happiness.

Here are some other things to consider in your hunt:

Find superior opportunities that have a tangible impact on the company's direction.

This could mean new process and product development, or simply a place that will listen to and respond to your feedback and ideas. You will undoubtedly feel a sense of accomplishment.

Consider your position on the corporate ladder.

The internal organizational chart isn't the only hierarchy that matters. A new, higher-profile position with a more respected organization can lend more stature and influence among your peers and professional contacts.

Look for a company that actually delivers on the perks, benefits and cultural advantages it advertises.

The Society for Human Resource Management's 2014 Strategic Benefits Survey revealed that although 52% of organizations report providing flexible work arrangements, not all of them apply such benefits throughout the business. In fact, just 33% of respondents allow the majority of their employees flexible work arrangements.

Part 7: Find a true, mutually beneficial learning culture.
