Job Action Day 2010 is all about emphasizing the importance of creating opportunity in the new world of work -- of helping you move your career and/or job-search forward.
Job Action Day is a day for all job-seekers and workers to take stock of their situations and make plans and/or take action steps to improve their careers.
As the unemployment crisis slogs on, it's clear that the new world of work involves far fewer full-time, permanent jobs with benefits than in the past. Job Action Day 2010, the third-annual initiative spearheaded by Quintessential Careers, addresses this new world of work by exhorting job-seekers to look at innovative ways to create opportunity -- and move their careers forward.
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.
