How to Stay Sane…

Being laid off is one of the most stressful things to happen to a person. Studies have shown that it is as stressful as suffering a major illness and almost as stressful as divorce or going to jail. Staying mentally healthy after a layoff is a key to riding out the financial turbulence and finding a new job. There are several vital things works can do to stay balanced during this challenging life event.

Why Reaching the Casual…

When the unemployment rate is high, employers can pick and choose their new hires from the ranks of those without a job.

Things become considerably more challenging when the economy turns around and the unemployment rate dips. While no one wants a bad economy, it is hard to deny that a good economy presents a difficult environment for those with jobs to fill. Economists used to define full employment as a 5% unemployment rate, and though things have changed somewhat, that guideline is still a useful one for employers and hiring managers. When the unemployment rate dips to the 5% level and below, an overwhelming percentage of workers who want jobs already have jobs. Hiring new workers in an environment like that can be challenging to say the least, but all is not lost. Some 95% of the working-age population may have jobs, but that does not mean they love their jobs or their employers. No matter how high or low the unemployment rate, there are always disaffected workers, or employees who would eagerly switch jobs if given the opportunity. That is where the casual job search comes into play. Employers who are able to reach out to those..
