Online guide gives aid to job seekers

As employers put the brakes on hiring in this economic downturn, the best and fastest way to a new job for the nation’s 7.8 million unemployed workers may be to look for positions where others are not: companies that have recently announced layoffs.

Target struggling companies is just one piece of advice being offered by global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., in its new downloadable guidebook, How to Find a Job in an Economic Downturn. The guide can be retrieved at Challenger Guidebook.

The guidebook comes just as the job market is starting to show signs of strain from the housing market collapse that began last August. While job cut announcementshave not surged to levels reached in previous recessions, layoffs are beginning to creep upward. A total of 200,656 job cuts were announced in the first quarter, up slightly from the 195,986 job cuts in the same period a year ago.

In addition, the government’s monthly survey of employer payrolls indicates that more jobs were lost than created in each of the first three months of 2008. This represents the first three-month job contraction since 2002. Overall, American payrolls have experienced a net loss of 232,000 jobs since January 1.

If holiday pressures get the best of you, shorten daily exercise sessions to 10 minutes, but no less. Human nature being what it is, you might get caught up in the regimen and decide to expand the 10-minute rule.

The good news is that you can find a new job at virtually any age. The bad news is that some employers don’t yet recognize the value of workers over 50. Start by crossing them off your list (at least mentally) and focus on those who might.

Firms are reevaluating their enlisting arranges as they sit tight for the softening economy to solidify. Keeping in mind the Internet has made it simpler than at any other time for employment seekers to post their resumes, that comfort has made it harder for contender to emerge. Indeed, even the nuts and bolts of a pursuit of employment—resumes, introductory letters, meetings and transactions—have changed as an aftereffect of the economy. It's no more a representative's business sector, and occupation seekers need to adjust in like manner—infrequently in radical ways that advantage bosses more than employment seekers.
