In between jobs: Recommendations

With the economy slowing (am I being charitable?),
it is worth listing positive things to involve yourself
in when in an awkward position of nearing the end
of term of a job or having not settled on your next
job.  You’re in-between “secure” employment.

- demonstrate willingness to do the employer’s
bidding and adapt to new demands.  It shows
EMPLOYABILITY.

-  volunteer for tasks, seek out formal courses
or training in desired job skills.  This openness
shows a HUNGER TO LEARN.

-  meet with business managers to gain an
understanding of how your work impacts their
business.  Be able to COMMUNICATE
WHAT YOU DO THAT IMPACTS
PROFITS.

shorter term contract employment
becomes more common with slower
economies.  TAKE TEMP OR TEMP
TO HIRE POSITIONS by making sure
your RESUME ASTUTELY MATCHES
REQUIREMENTS.

    - visited the local university library and
    researched various review article topics

    - developed a professional development
    course, now being given at a university,
