Start your job search to eliminate fear of job loss

When the company you work for is downsizing and you fear losing a job, the antidote is to start your job search right now. Even without the thought, “what if I lose my job?,” you must always have a strategy just in case.

The reason you must strategize is to counteract thoughts about the possibility of losing your job, and to know the rules of the job finding game. You can learn those rules either from a career counselor you can hire by the hour, by purchasing my book about how to find jobs, or by snatching snippets of job-hunting advice from right here on Your Career

When some of your colleagues have already gotten the ax and you’re thinking, “maybe I’ll be next,” it’s no use pretending that everything is cool. As I mentioned above, you need to have a strategy. If you don’t step up and fight for yourself, nobody else will. And when it comes to getting what you want for your job and career, you’re either winning or losing.

You’ll win job security only by being prepared. If you’re worrying about what will happen if you lose your job, get busy by updating your resume and renewing your list of contacts. Then reach out to those who are most likely to help you.

A powerful source of job-finding self-help is my book, “Your One-Minute Job Finding Coach.” In this book about how to find a job and manage your career, you’ll find one-minute tips on what to do when the ax falls, how to write a resume, to how to handle mini-interviews at job fairs, how to turn interviews into job offers, and much more.

Got a minute? Then read for a minute and learn game-changing search techniques that will help you land a job faster and make money sooner as a result. Order now.
