Some Guidelines for Finding a New Job

Once you have set assessing your financial position into motion, and you know, you cannot retire, you have to, either,



get out there and find a new job, or


start your own business.

Having lost your job might be a new opportunity for you to pursue what your always wanted to do. You don't have to become euphoric about the prospect. But directing your thought towards what you are going to do with your future, might help you live a more satisfying life!

When you have completed your self assessment you should sit down and create a new resume, we will call a core resume. You will have to modify that resume, for every job application you write, but this core resume, will be the guide for the jobs you are going to apply for. The self assessment helped you to find out, what you are good at and where you can contribute most to the endeavor of any future employer. These points you will have to stress in your new core resume. It will even help you, if you decide to start your own business.

Take some time to do that and review it thoroughly. Remember, recruiters and hiring managers get large numbers of resumes and if you want to make an impact, yours has to stand out in some positive ways. Don't oversell yourself, but don't sell yourself short either! We have a page that will help you creating a resume.

It maybe helpful to use a professional resume writing service, even if, in the end, you only use the substance of the resume that you think is appropriate for the job you apply. But, professional writers they will tell you a lot about format and they have the advantage of "knowing" the formulations that hiring managers and recruiters feel comfortable with and recognize. You will find a few useful ideas about creating a resume on our first page about a job loss. In addition, we have a resume page that deals with specific issues such as cover letters and how to use professional writing services. Restoro

Once you have a core resume you can start your job search in earnest. Again the key to a successful job hunt is "being organized". This cannot be stressed enough! Here then are a few rules that should help you:

Ten Points to make the Job Search easier.
A Guideline to finding a New Job
Make your name known to recruiters, hiring managers and networking groups. Make it know what you are looking for. People will not offer you a job, if they do not know that you are out there!
Beginning with the first day after you have lost your job, check the job market regularly, to see whether your job expectations are appropriate in the market. Keep your finger on the pulse and get a feel for the changes that might have taken place in the job market.
Create daily and weekly "task sheet". Lists of "tasks to do", in order that you can measure progress and that you know where you stand. Be organized in your job search! You will decrease your stress level that way!
Manage your network connections and update them when and as appropriate. Keep in regular touch with people and groups that can help you. That could include former bosses and coworkers!
Be eager, but not visibly aggressive, because the latter can be counter productive. Hiring managers and recruiters do not like "pushy buggers" who phone them every second day! They like people who take initiative, but have little patience with time wasters!
When you get offered a job, know where and when to compromise. It is an advantage if you make a list of the issues you can compromise on, before you are forced to make a decision.
Use the help of experts when it is needed. This might be at the stage where you need a new resume, or when you have to take some psychological evaluation tests or when you go for an interview. Ask people you know, who had the same experiences, or go to the expert!
In your job search, be driven by urgency, but not by fear. You need a job, because you have to earn money and you are willing to compromise on certain issues. But fear is not a good motivating force for a search and for a decision making process about a new job!
Try to be active and creative, rather than reactive in your job search.That could lead to proposing a "new job" to an employer. It might be based on your experience or on some economic necessity, you have detected in the job market.
Use the time you have available in-between preparing your job search wisely. If you know of educational opportunities that are available and fit your budget, take advantage of it. But remember, the courses have to fit your career goals and future plans and, they have to improve your marketability!

Looking for a job is a stressful time. Especially, when the cause is involuntary. Present uncertain economic times add to the stress. But the better organized you are the more you can lower the stress on yourself and your surrounding. their spending etc. How do I keep sane, when my world falls apart is a lighthearted look that should help you coping with the problem.

Finally, we have some books which provide you with further information if you need that. Buy the cheapest version, but use one from a reputable second hand suppliers (the amazon second hand suppliers have stars!).
