Finding a new job could be a little difficult these days. However, if employees and employers take a few extra steps, unemployment may not be an option for long. Companies tend to downsize or reorganize from time to time resulting in lay offs and others may be fired. When looking for a new job, a great heat start is by updating one’s resume immediately. As an employer, employing these people that are let go, could be another companies prized treasure.
- If you are a job recruiter and you are familiar with which companies have recently laid off workers, you can tap into this pool of hot candidates.
- Workers who have been recently laid off should not wait to update their resume or online profiles, because recruiters will be looking for them.
- Employees who were not laid off may also seek out job opportunities with companies that are more stable than the ones that recently laid off their co-workers.
“While companies may lay off employees to streamline processes or reorganize, that doesn’t mean those employees don’t have marketable skills that can be of value to a new employer.”
