Has abandoned his hopes for the professional who wants to change until the economy is better? While it is true that fewer companies are hiring now, you have some advantages in the beginning of the transition, now that you do not realize.
There is always a positive side, so read on and cheer!
1. Use the longest time to get clear on what you want. When jobs are abundant may be tempting to take a similar job elsewhere that does not provide enough real change to be truly successful, only to look for something else after a year or two.
Even if you do not expect that your move in the next month, start researching what you really want to do, it will bring all to yourself, find meaning and stay with the long term.
2. Build your network and experience as a volunteer. There may be fewer job offers, but organizations still need good people to stay afloat. This can be a good time to put your foot in the door in a field where no direct experience. planning skills, writing, public relations, fundraising, project management, business or event, and other skills are necessary in a multitude of organizations.
If you want to work for the environment, the arts, research, community services and many other areas, may be able to gain valuable experience and connections as a volunteer – then a candidate “in house” when a job that would open for you!
3. Go solo! If you can not find a job, start doing what I want anyway, on a smaller scale. Start a blog or website, put the voice and charge a competitive rate. If you have a passion for something, you’re probably right! As you gain experience you can find opportunities as a freelancer or consultant who would not be open permanently. You may like it so much you’ll need to “shift” when you thought you were alone in a test drive!
More importantly, do not be discouraged. If you become open to the possibility that just might find. It’s always too early to give up what you love. What you got to lose?
