So, you have lost your job or are about to lose your job. What can you do?
First and foremost is not to panic and prepare to start actively applying and tailoring your resume and cover letter to positions.
Carefully consider your skills and experience. Open up your options to jobs that you can do and are willing to do.
Sure, during periods of a recession or low economic activity, jobs can be scarce.
But stay positive, in control and focused. Get your CV in order by utilising the services of a professional resume writer. They will write up a custom-tailored resume designed to market and promote your skills and experience, even tailoring your cover letter or a general letter that you can edit yourself.
Try not to rush your job applications too. Employers will notice this.
