Here are some job resources for you:

1) ASSESSMENT

2) TARGETING TOOLS

How else can you target your new job:

  • Apply – apply to jobs
  • Pre-apply – do informational interviews, group meetings
  • Work – run a Meetup group, be a contributor to a blog, start a website or twitter account about your industry, volunteer in it. You can do a lot of work without officially being employed. And then – BIG BENEFIT – it’s not like you were unemployed for ten months. It’s like you were running community events on that field in your industry.


3) ACTION STEPS

IN THIS ECONOMY:

I wish you all the best and I wish you the most beautiful fate!

    I would add one more resource…. Toastmasters!

    Toastmasters is an incredibly cost effective way for people to improve their communication skills and self confidence. For many job seekers, this can make the difference between an offer and a rejection.

    Can you tell that I’ve been a Toastmasters member and strong proponent for years? I can honestly say that it has made an incredible difference in my career and I would recommend that every jobseeker at least visit a Toastmasters club near them.

    (Guests are always welcome.)

    Hope this recommendation helps !

    Dave!

    Couldn’t agree more. The point is to practice, practice, and feel comfortable. Toastmasters helps with exactly that. Plus, you end up really getting to know that group, and learning a lot – it’s like a meetup before there were meetups! Thanks for this rec.
