Long Term Unemployed

by KHouseman on June 21, 2017

The article below appears in the July 2017 issue of Money Magazine.

Unfortunately, the online article does not contain the final segment titled “Solutions to End Your Job Drought” (probably to stimulate sales of their hard copy magazines). To summarize from the article:
1. Stay Busy
   The lack of a normal workday is disorienting. The suggestion is to find a regular commitment such as fundraising for a charity, consulting pro bono for a nonprofit, or mentoring people in your field. You will maintain a sense of normalcy, and have something to discuss with a hiring manager when (s)he asks what you have been up to.
2. Don’t Mind the Gap
  Acknowledge the gap in the résumé, but don’t dwell on it. Spend more time on why you are the right person for the job. Your current unemployment has nothing to do with how well you can do your next job.
3. Unplug
  Going online can be a good resource, but the article recommends spending 80% of your time building a network and connecting with other people, and the other 20% online. Sites like LinkedIn and Meetup can help you identify industry-specific events in the area. The article suggests getting involved on a logistical level, like handing out pamplhets at a meeting, and using that as an icebreaker.
4. Seek Small
   The article suggests foregoing the industry giants, and looking at small and medium size employers. The local library or Chamber of Commerce can be a good resource for identifying businesses, and for companies that are in growth mode. Chances are some of them are looking for experienced candidates.
Your local library reading room likely has as subscription to Money Magazine, and you could read the full article there at no cost.

Google Jobs Search Engine

by KHouseman on June 21, 2017

Google has launched a new feature in its search engine that let you search for jobs across virtually all of the major online job boards like LinkedIn, Monster, WayUp, DirectEmployers, CareerBuilder, Facebook and others. Google will also include job listings it finds on a company’s homepage. The idea here is to give job seekers an easy way to see which jobs are available without having to go to multiple sites only to find duplicate postings and lots of irrelevant jobs.
