What if your plan to find a new job doesn’t work? Do you have a back up? If you’ve performed different kinds of work, take advantage of that experience and give yourself more opportunity. I’m currently working with a client who is therapist. He is also pursuing positions that take advantage of his skill as a manager. To give himself even more opportunity, he’s networking to explore positions in counseling and training. This smart job seeker has given himself a Plan B and a Plan C. Examine your career and try to develop plans to take advantage of skills that might let you pursue a different kind of work. In most cases, that means developing a second or third resume and cover to support your different types of job searches. It’s a little more work in preparing to look for work, but it can give you more opportunities and choices in finding a new employer.
