Improving Your Job Search in a Recession Session 1

You may wonder, how does a recession impact my job search? The fact is Web 2.0 tools and project management skills are key to an effective job search. These tools are not just for professional Project Managers anymore. A good business and financial plan are critical to attaining critical corporate goals, so too is a project plan for your job search. And just as a corporate firm relies on its leaders in order to attain its critical goals, so too does your family rely on you to quickly find a fulfilling new opportunity. If you don't have the ability to know and manage to your career objectives, focus on the right opportunities, and promote your skills and accomplishments in a timely and market effective manner, then you may be missing out on, or worse, passed over for the best opportunities.
