My (Re)Employment Plan
Studies show that workers who transition from layoff to their next job the fastest understand the importance of making
themselves a good match for their next employer. Being a good match means understanding the interests, skills and values
that you possess that will get you hired.
DETAILED JOB SEARCH PLAN
- An updated résumé that has been reviewed by a peer or workforce professional will be your first impression.
Don’t let it stand out for the wrong reasons.
- Facebook and Twitter are often checked by employers. Make your profile attractive to businesses looking to hire.
- Use social networking to your advantage. Promote your professionalism and skills, not your weekend.
Make a timeline for getting a job.
- Unemployment Insurance benefits last on average less than 13 weeks. Many people get a job within 10 weeks
because they start looking right away.
Network and Apply
- Engaging the job market is more than just applying. Target your applications to employers looking to hire that
fit your skill set and connections.
