Here is a teaser of what you’ll find —
Whether your company calls it a Lay Off, a Termination, or a Reduction in Force, the bottom line is that you are out of job and need to find a new one. So how do you do that? There are no easy answers or quick fixes, but there are some straightforward techniques that in the end may mean you don’t just find a job, but you build a career.
Bob Smith, Accounting Manager for National Products, has just received some unwelcome news. After 15 years with the company, his job has been eliminated and he’s now unemployed. There is some good news. He’s a bright and talented manager and the company has provided a severance package and outplacement program. With some hard work and a little luck, he just might be all right.
Follow Bob as he goes through the fear and shock of losing his job and sharing the bad news with his family and friends. Join him as he begins the outplacement process and learns how to find a new job. Struggle with him when he doesn’t have much success, and celebrate with him when he does.
Learn from Bob about how to deal with the emotions of losing your job, how to start a job search, and how to use networking to uncover the 70 percent of job openings that are never advertised. Get tips on writing a resume that fits your style; using a target list to help others help you; getting the most out of social media, and things to consider if your job search leads you to start your own business. Bob will even show you how to negotiate your best job offer.
The job market has not been this tight in over 50 years. You need all the help you can get to find the right job for you. Bob can help – all you have to do is ask.
