The second annual Job Action Day, spearheaded by Quintessential Careers, is set for November 2. The event addresses the jobless recovery by instigating a call to action for both job seekers and those not actively searching.
For job seekers, it’s a day to step back, rethink your job search strategy, re-tool, and re-position yourself for employment opportunities.
For people who are employed, it’s a day to evaluate your job and employer, assess their stability, determine whether they meet your fulfillment needs, and develop next career plans.
“The idea is that job-seekers can take plenty of action steps right now — today — to move forward in their careers, even if they’re unemployed and have been for some time,” said Quintessential Careers Founder and Publisher Dr. Randall S. Hansen.
“We established Job Action Day last year as a day for job-seekers pummeled by the economic meltdown to take control of their careers and initiate action,” Hansen said. “Where last year shock, fear, and paralysis may have inhibited action, this year, the gloom of prolonged unemployment may be de-motivating job-seekers.”
But Hansen underscores his belief that job-seekers have plenty of options to get on track in his timely article, 10 Things (Activities) You Can Do Today for Your Job Search.
