Looking around, it may seem like getting a job in this economy is about as easy as climbing Mount Everest. Unemployment is up, more talented people are losing their jobs and the thought of a job hunt is pretty daunting for most professionals, especially those who have not needed to look for a job in a long time.
However, I believe that keeping a positive attitude and taking advantage of all of all available tools at their disposal can help job seekers be successful, even in seemingly bleak times. In her blog for Examiner.com, Heather Huhman reports some heartening findings.
For example, news isn’t all that bad if you have a college degree. Rob McGovern, CEO Jobfox says the unemployment rate is only 3.1 percent for professionals with college degrees.
Heather reports on McGovern’s recommendations for students and recent graduates looking for work. I think these tips apply to all job seekers. (Commentary is my own.)
