Dealing with negative
feelings over a job loss
Abridged: Yourcareersevices.com NEW YORK, NY --
When you're having
trouble coping over a job loss, you don't know whether to scream or go
bowling. Your initial outcry, "I've been screwed," is only natural. Having
to deal with employment rejection is no fun. Here are a few ways to deal
with your negative feelings.
First, it's important that you allow yourself a short period of time to
mourn over your loss. Effects of job loss can feel overwhelming. So you need
to acknowledge your feelings and decide to cope with change. Second, get
busy with your job search. One of the best antidotes for feeling depressed
is activity. Whenever feeling down, start working on a project as one of the
ways to deal with lowered feelings.
And finally, leave emotions behind when meeting people. When you wallow in
emotions, your anger is projected on to prospective employers. This can ruin
relationships. You will be unsuccessful at interviews and bowl a lousy game.
be flexible in your search for a job
Abridged: USA Today
SACRAMENTO, CA -- In
today's evolving economy, it's important to stay flexible when searching for a
new job. Look inside and take stock of the skills and personal qualities that
you have to offer. Apply flexibility to generate options. A limiting factor for
many job seekers is the failure to generate a host of options to pursue. Mention
flexibility as one of your attributes, so you can use it to expand the
possibilities that build on your strengths in some way.
Be on the lookout for new applications of your skills and different industries
that would benefit from your experience. Communicate confidently. It's possible
to have a sound strategy and still be overlooked if you fail to promote yourself
effectively. Work with someone you trust to develop the words that will convey
clear and compelling messages about who you are and what you have to offer.
Consider combining job search approaches. Distribute your resume to multiple
career sites and niche job boards. Network with others to share information and
job leads for your search. Combining networking with other job search tools and
strategies (online postings, job search engines, career sites, recruiters, job
fairs, direct mail) will allow you to allocate your time productively and
capitalize on the benefits of each technique.
think about before job searching
Abridged: The Indianapolis
-- Jim Shumacker is a career coach and owner of CareerPerfection.com. "I want
people to have a good in-depth knowledge of what makes career happiness before
searching for a new job," Shumacker said. He offers the following advice for
those contemplating a career change.
The job search should be the culmination of a study of yourself. Start exploring
who you are. Look back into childhood and search for clues about your
influences, dreams and passions. Get to know your personality type. Your
personality dictates how you relate to people, how you process information, how
you make decisions and what organizational structure makes you perform at your
Learn how your values affect your career. Beyond personality, values play a
surprisingly important role in career success. Know your mission. It is not
enough to understand your history, personality and values. Before changing
careers, you need to be clear on what you are trying to accomplish. Success is
not based on what you are paid, but rather on understanding how you want to be
known and relied on by others.
Start your job search
before you relocate
Abridged: The Wall Street Journal
CLEVELAND, OH --
Start your research at least six months before you move, says Bob Skladany,
vice president, research, for RetirementJobs.com. Although most employers
fill openings no more than three to four months in advance, some may be
willing to consider you before you move, he says.
After you've picked a place to live, subscribe to local newspapers, join
business networking groups, stay up to date in your industry by reading
trade publications, and network online through career sites, social
networking sites, and business minded people.
Make sure you spend some time updating your resume with your current job
experience. Prepare your resume using your new contact information and work
history, showcasing the specific skills you see in the job ads you want to
applying to. Consider taking temporary jobs to get to know area employers
and demonstrate your skills.
Jump start your
stalled job search
Abridged: The Wall Street Journal
NEW YORK, NY
-- Here are smart strategies that could jump start your stalled job search
and boost your sagging spirits. The key: Treat your hunt like a
business problem. Package yourself based on a frank reassessment of your
strengths and weaknesses.
You can target possible employers better by figuring out and promoting what
sets you apart. "Build your personal brand," advises William Brown, a senior
managing director for an arm of DBM, a New York human-resources consultancy. Ask
yourself and acquaintances, "Why is this product not selling?" recommends
Dave Opton, CEO of ExecuNet, of Norwalk, Conn.
One reason may be a flawed resume. Make sure that your resume is doing the
job. Even tiny fixes enhance the appeal, such as an easy-to-read format and
plenty of white space. A professionally written resume counts more than an
attractive typeface. Listing your cell phone and private e-mail address
signals that you're ready for employer contacts outside normal hours. Your
career summary should be specific enough that HR officials can easily
pinpoint your abilities.
