Need A Job? How to Find and Win Your Dream Job With "The Job Hunter's Handbook"
Dear Unemployed Winner,
Its really true, isnt it? They say its really easy to get a job when youre already working and dont need one!
When you are unemployed, however, and trying to live on the meager unemployment checks it can get real scary real fast!
The checks wont cover a house payment or rent, let alone utilities and minor details like food for your kids! What's a person supposed to do?
Somewhere between the great depression and the information age, job hunting wasnt the stressful task it is today. A guy like your Dad or your grandfather worked the same job clear up to retirement.
After putting in his 20, 30 or 40 years his boss would give him a gold watch and a pension for his faithful years of service.
Sadly, that is no longer the case. Every day we see more and more jobs being eroded by more technology or actually re-assigning your position to someone half way across the world!
Instead of planning on putting in your time then enjoying the fruits of your labor, you are lucky if the job lasts more than a year or so before you get the pink slip that tells you that the company is re-aligning their resources and your position is being eliminated!
The problem is that this will hit most people when they least expect it and this process repeats itself every single day across the country.
So, what can you do about it?
One of the first things you should do is become pro-active instead of reactive.
The decision to eliminate your job or lay you off wasnt made in a day. Its the result of a process. You just arent told about it until its too late, leaving you in a bind.
We arent saying that you should not be loyal to your employer, just never have all your eggs in one basket. Learn how the job hunting process works today and always have a back up plan in place.
Yes, have a plan in place. That old adage we mentioned in the first sentence is true. . .its really easy to get a job when youre already working and dont need one!
Its a hunt know your prey!
Remain on top of the current market trends that affect your companys industry. Keep your ear to the ground for rumors or innuendo and be ready to go to Plan B at a moments notice.
Grab your copy of The Job Hunters Handbook, and follow all the instructions. Do this and you can avoid a lengthy period of unemployment!
Actually put yourself in the position of always anticipating a worse case scenario. Do this and you will avoid stress knowing full well that a new job is just a few days away.
Thats the problem with most employment issues. People just wait around for the axe to fall and then they have to become re-active because they dont have a clue where to begin.
When laid off the first place most people go is to the classified section of their newspaper. That may be okay but there is so much more that can be done.
