Job Action Day 2008 is all about facing the realities of the global economic meltdown and taking action steps to protect your job, build your career.

There is no question that the U.S. economy -- and economies around the globe -- are hurting. Companies announce retrenchments, mergers, and layoffs on a daily basis. No job is safe in these situations, but there are also may opportunities for hiring and promotions -- under the right conditions and with the right strategies.
The articles and blog entries related to Job Action Day give both workers and job-seekers information, ideas, and concrete steps that you can take to secure your futures -- both in the short-term and in the long-term.
