Trying to figure out the next step in your job search can sometimes feel like a shot in the dark, but it doesn’t have to. Having a plan with potential options laid out can help minimize the time you spend searching for your next job without having a clear idea of what it is you’re looking for.

Even if you know what your next step is, it can still be useful to write out your different job paths to consider. Using our free research sheet, you can organize all your career options and industries that interest you.

First, brainstorm industries, companies, and functions that appeal to you. This will help refine your search and make your career shift that much easier. Think of companies that have caught your eye in the past or that you have admired and would enjoy working for.

Next, create a plan with your various skills, knowledge, experiences, and anything you plan on learning for these potential roles. (If you need help thinking of skills, check out our free skills database.) In addition to creating a place with different career options, when it comes time to prepare for a new job you can easily come back to this sheet and review the plan you put in place.
