Get Back to Work: Support Resources

In my upcoming book, Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move, the second chapter – Support Resources – is a great place for helpful resources that can be utilized by job seekers when looking for work.

With so many untapped resources out there, chances are you’re not using many of these effective tactics available while looking for work. Why? Most likely because:

1.       People are not aware of the existing resources, or

2.       People looking for work don’t think that they need resources, or that the resources can’t help them or that the resources don’t fit their specific needs

In my book, Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move, the fourth chapter – Networking – reviews strategies to successfully build a list of contacts through effective networking to find new job opportunities.

Get Back to Work: The Checklist

Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move my upcoming book that will be released later this summer – is something I never thought that I could, or would  write… but circumstances in my life changed that.  Back in 2009 when I was laid off my from job in corporate America after over a decade of working in staffing and recruiting, I thought I would jump right back into the workforce with a new job quickly.  During my year and half journey of unemployment and, more importantly, reinvention, I was also helping others to find work.  In 2010 I became involved with Active Job Seekers of America where I was president of the local chapter and then volunteer executive director, a position I still hold today.
