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.




  • 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.

Social Networking

  • 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.
