Lost your job?Looking for a better job?

Time to stop, think, re-group, take stock AND start again with a even  better resume!


Often, our jobs are much more than just the way we make a living. They influence how we see ourselves, as well as the way others see us. Our jobs give us structure, purpose, and meaning. So how will you cope when you are no longer working?

The good news is that despite the stress, there are many things you can do to take control of a future situation and maintain your spirits. You can get through this tough time by taking care of yourself, reaching out to others, and taking the opportunity to rethink your career goals and rediscover what truly makes you happy.

Remember that the vast majority of job openings are never advertised; they’re filled by word of mouth. That’s why networking is the best way to find a job. Unfortunately, many are hesitant to take advantage of networking because they’re afraid of being seen as pushy, annoying, or self-serving. But networking isn’t about using other people or aggressively promoting yourself—it’s about building relationships. As you look for a new job, these relationships can provide much-needed feedback, advice, and support

Other proactive strategies are:

  • Complete and update a new resume
  • Tailor resume for each job application
  • Keep eye on job market trends
  • Search for jobs each day using a variety of methods
  • Stay positive
