Hang in there baby! SHRM Says: Fewer Jobs, Tougher Recruiting Ahead

SHRM Says: Fewer Jobs, Tougher Recruiting Ahead.

Ouch!

If you are currently employed, and are passively looking for new employment, you’re out of luck.

If you are currently unemployed and actively looking for work,  you’re out of luck!

Articles and data like this can be very disappointing for those that are actively seekign new employment opportunities. But don’t despair. Try to see working against these dismal numbers as a challenge. Unemployed but have a little moeny stashed? Take a class or two related to your career field. You never know who you will meet that has a connection to, or is, a hiring manager, company recruiter, external recruiter or even a new networking buddy.

Currently employed but have a little time on your hands? Start combing the job boards to see what types of positions are available that interest you. Are you willing to move anywhere to get your dream job??? Be sure to mention that on your resume or LinkedIn profile. Contact your friends and family in other states and let them know that you are looking for a positive change. Get your professional and personal network working for you!

Hire a Recruitment and/or HR Consultant. They can help you freshen up your resume, build your online job-seeker presence and give you great interview tips!

Don’t be shy! Get out and join a few professional networking groups. You never know who you will meet or who they know.

Put youself out there job seekers! Don’t give up!

Namaste
