Hi, I’m usually a lurker here, but I also lost my job (in December)
and want to suggest that you network! It’s not just for high-poweredexecutive types. I just got a new job (start next week) because 2
former coworkers referred me to the company they work for. I didn’t
even need to apply–the company called me, I went in for aninterview, and had an offer the next day! All because I made sure
everyone I knew had my contact info.
Make a list of EVERYONE you know–old co-workers, friends, themailman, everyone who knows you by name. Find as many of their emails
or phone numbers as you can and just let them know that you are out
of work and looking for a new job, adding a short sentence about whatexactly your ideal job would be or what your qualifications are. Make
sure they have your email and phone number. Someone may see a good
opportunity for you or be able to help.Good luck!
