Review your job search timeline in December
ATLANTA, GA --
Perhaps the most important thing you can do in
December is to review your job search timeline. Don't go into the new year
wondering when you'll be re-employed. Instead, set a date and work backward to
develop your schedule of steps. The earlier the date you set, the more
aggressive your job search will have to be, so use these December weeks to set
Attend parties and networking events. Make sure you pass out your business card,
and collect the contact information of the people you meet. Opportunities for
business socializing abound in December, so take advantage! Look through your
database for people you should greet with a holiday card. Continue sending out
resumes and cover letters until at least the 15th.
Spend time with a trusted adviser to review your job search so far. Look for
weak areas and new ideas to try in the new year. Revise your resume if needed.
Catch up on research in your industry; plan ways to use the data in your job
search. Set your schedule for January, including meetings with networking
contacts. Get something onto every weekday for the first two weeks of the year,
so you can hit the ground running.
Tips for unemployed executives coping with job loss.
Abridged: TIME Online NEW YORK, NY --
The more you make, the more is at stake.
People accustomed to six-figure salaries are increasingly among those seeking
jobs. Even as the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits
approaches a 26-year high, there are still a sizable number of jobs open for
reasons unrelated to the economic turmoil. Companies may not be making
expansionary or discretionary hires, but with natural turnover, there may be 3.2
million hires a year instead of 4 million in a normal market.
Get professional help. One frequent blunder even million-dollar-job seekers
commit is deciding to write and edit their resumes without expert input. "Your
labor is the most valuable thing you're going to sell," says Marc Cenedella,
founder of TheLadders.com. "Would you have an amateur copywriter write copy for
the most valuable product you have? Then why would you write your resume
To land new spots before year's end, six-figure earners are also increasingly
supplementing their willingness to shift roles with old-fashioned networking.
And they're not just calling old friends and recruiters; they're digitizing
their Rolodexes through professional networking sites like LinkedIn. To get a
leg up on the mounting competition, all job seekers are taking up new tactics.
Forget the holiday job search dogma
AUSTIN, TX --
I love this time of year, but I hate to
hear people say, "Well, I guess I'll put my job search on hold until after
Christmas. No one makes job offers this time of year." That is some very bad
dogma, not only because it's not true but because it puts additional stress
on already stressed-out job seekers. When you're under financial pressure,
it's a good idea to put your available job search time to use. It's bad to
put it on hold, and to feel as though you have to cool your heels until the
The "companies don't hire in December" hogwash sticks around, year after
year, notwithstanding its foolishness. Companies make offers all year long,
and the most common corporate fiscal year-end is Dec. 31. Managers who have
job openings budgeted for fiscal 2008 need to fill those jobs. Organizations
hire people when they have problems to solve. Do employers have problems to
solve right now? You bet they do. Job candidates who can solve those
problems are valuable.
If you're currently job hunting, you should be sending out your resume and
cover letter now. Research and reach out to a few new employers every day,
and use both online and offline networks like crazy in your job search. Keep
searching right up until Santa's helpers have dismantled the big man's
throne on the Pearl Street Mall. That job offer might very well arrive
before 2009 does.
Use the poor economy as a
chance to stand out!
Abridged: Oregon Daily Emerald
EUGENE, OR -- Your traditional job search
plan may need a renovation. Career counselors agree, the keys to starting a
career in today's economy are flexibility and creativity, not rigid
planning. There are career possibilities for job seekers who have a
strategy. Use the poor economy as a chance to stand out!
Job seekers need to be more flexible and realistic in how they envision a
new job. They'll probably be in smaller markets, and may not be what you had
in mind. The job market is changing. Consider government jobs, technology
jobs, health care, education and other service fields that are growing. Job
seekers need to think outside the box when choosing a career. Be more
It's important to have a strategy for finding a job. Networking is key to
your successes. Career fairs and job shadowing are excellent ways to meet
professionals in your chosen field. Get experience in any way you can! Job
experience makes you more competitive. Don't let the tough environment give
you an excuse to not do anything. Now is the time to stand out from the
crowd. Make yourself known in the professional world you plan on entering.
We need your help; good people always seem to know good people - that's
why we place a high value on the recommendations we receive from our candidates.
