Use the 5Ws to generate search keywords
Think about the Who, What, Where, When, Why of your career to generate a list of ideas for narrowing your search. If you only use one or two words to search for your career, congratulations! You get thousands of search results to look through! Noooooooo! But after brainstorming with the 5 Ws, you now have a list of words to add to your search to narrow and focus your search to something specific. Here are some sample searches from my brainstorm for "librarians" - librarians and teaching and college / librarians and technology / librarians and empathy / etc.
