• What you *must* do if you’re looking for work

    04 Feb 2009

    Like so many other people I know my best friend recently lost his job. I was talking with him the other day and I told him that even though he’s unemployed he needs to be working full time to find a job.

    This means submitting applications, calling on friends/colleagues, connecting to and recommending others on LinkedIn, tweaking your resume again and again, taking classes, attending networking events – whatever it takes. Six to eight or more hours a day…

    The jobs are limited and the competition’s tough out there right now. If you’re unemployed you have to do something – anything – to stand out above the rest. Working full-time to find a job is the thing to focus on right now. It will pay off.
