Is your company downsizing?

If your company is starting to talk about downsizing…get ready to find a new job


If your company has been “downsizing” you may want to look for a job before you get your walking papers, or face being in a sea of candidates with similar backgrounds. The good jobs out there get picked over first based on who knows who – so take control of your career and start your job search as soon as you catch wind of a downsize. Following the newspapers is a good indication of market conditions, so make it a practise to know what’s going on around you.

Join LinkedIn and the associated groups to network and learn about your industry.

Attend industry events, often you can find free ones, or opt to host one.

Put your contact information on the bottom of your LinkedIn so headhunters can contact you.

You want to get ahead of the race on this one!

Ready Set, GO!
