Everyone needs a platform and marketing strategy in today’s economy of supply and demand of job openings versus the unemployed. In a world where the applicants’ skills once commanded pay to match, now find the roles have reversed and must learn how to rise above the competition with or without an advocate.
Between down-sizing, lay-offs, relocating to another country, firing staff, justified or not, companies have inadvertently moved the ball out of the applicants’ court and into their own, reversing the supply and demand.
How do we rise above this?
How and where do we begin?
Who has a chance of being hired in today’s economy?
How do we shine brighter than the applicant before and after us?
What barriers do we face and how can we overcome them?
When do we need an advocate in our job search? If an advocate is needed, where do we find one? Once an advocate is brought on board, what role do they play in our job search? Suppose it is not a good match, are we obligated to continue with this advocate?
Once hired, should we become complacent?
How do we prepare our children as future applicants?
In securing the future for our children and ourselves, the world is becoming increasingly unknown; and rising above others in our approach as we search for employment is necessary. Generation 2 Generation will provide advice, links to agencies/advocacy groups and resources.
