Quintessential Careers, cadre of bloggers emphasize bright spots in “jobless recovery” as they mark second annual Job Action Day worldwide on Nov. 2.
While the economy is showing signs of recovery, indications that the recovery will continue to be “jobless” casts a pall over hopes for a full bounceback. Job Action Day, the second annual event spearheaded by Quintessential Careers, addresses the jobless recovery by spotlighting promising areas in which the unemployed and other job-seekers may find opportunities.
“The idea is that job-seekers can take plenty of action steps right now — today — to move forward in their careers, even if they’re unemployed and have been for some time,” said Quintessential Careers Founder and Publisher Dr. Randall S. Hansen. “We established Job Action Day last year as a day for job-seekers pummeled by the economic meltdown to take control of their careers and initiate action,” Hansen said. “Where last year shock, fear, and paralysis may have inhibited action, this year, the gloom of prolonged unemployment may be de-motivating job-seekers.”
