I Lost My Job – First Seven Things To Do

The first things I did when I lost my job where all the wrong things!  Here’s a list from Jim Stroud, a big name in the recruiting space, on what he recommends.  His seven things, which are different than I would have guessed, are definitely good things to do! Jim’s advice:

  1. Give Yourself a Makeover
  2. Get Your Picture Taken
  3. Become Searchable (I don’t agree on the MySpace part… but hey :))
  4. Create a Hard Copy Portfolio
  5. Write Some Testimonials About Yourself
  6. Throw a Party
  7. Start taking People to Lunch

Many of these probably won’t make sense at first, so go read Jim’s explanations of each here.
