Parade magazine (in your local Sunday newspaper), recently printed an article on “5 Steps to Take if you Lose Your Job”. This article was written by Gerri Willis from CNN and had five very concise suggestions for action in case you find yourself unemployed.
Hundreds of thousands of people are currently unemployed. These five steps (paraphrased) are simple and critical to seeking re-employment.
- File for unemployment
- Consider looking for a job that is lower than your current position
- Get retrained
- Fill the gap with contract work
- Find other sources of money – like a 401K, education funds, etc.
Getting retrained might be the key to looking for a new job. Project Management can help you in your new job search and in your new career.
Your job search is a project that is best managed by establishing and documenting goals and performing a systematic series of processes or events to move you towards project completion – your new job or new endeavor.
Project Managers are still in the “top 10” of sought after job skills in most industries. Project management is recognized as a skill that enables efficiency within organizations and enables success. Project managers are needed, especially in dire economic conditions.
TSI has project management training classes monthly in several geographic locations that would allow a person with no experience to get trained in project management AND get an entry level certification – the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®). We even have a monthly scholarship program for the unemployed.
