2010 will not be the year of the job-seeker, but that does not mean persistent and well-prepared job-seekers will not find jobs. Jobs are out there.
Several leading experts and numerous surveys in the last few weeks of 2009 predicted that there will be very little job growth in 2010 — that even as the economy gets better (assuming it does as predicted), employers will be cautious and slow in hiring.
So, while it appears that this year will not be the year of the job-seeker, if you are hoping or needing to find a new job, you not despair. Employers are still hiring that’s the good news. The bad news is that job openings will be harder to find — and there will be much more competition for these limited openings.
Thus, if you want a new job in 2010, make it a resolution that you will learn and utilize the best ways to find a new job. You will need to review and revamp your resume (not just now, but for every job opportunity), step up your networking and relationship-building (both in-person and online), and persistently pursue and follow-up every job lead and job interview.
If you have the will to fight for a new job in 2010, we have all the tools and resources on QuintCareers.com to arm you for winning the battle for better employment. The best place to start your preparations is our Career Resources Toolkit for Job-Seekers, but feel free to use our site search engine to find the specific resources you need to succeed!
