12 Habits of Highly Effective Job Seekers in a Down Market

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

Even in a down market, job seekers and employees are not powerless or without recourse. In fact, you have more control over your career circumstances than you might think. Over my 25 years of experience as an Executive Career Coach, I’ve developed 12 specific strategies and tactics that consistently generate strong results for job seekers, even when “no one’s hiring.”

1. Network, network, network. Continually increase your level of networking and keep expanding your contact database. Reach out to reestablish and nourish business and personal relationships. Offer to help others, even if they’re not in a position to help you (because “what goes around comes around”). There is no substitute for connecting with people one-on-one. Stay in touch and don’t isolate yourself. Being out of work does not mean you have to be out of touch, so be sure to build and maintain your networking momentum.

2. Enhance your career education and credentials. Read career books and attend career seminars. Take advantage of learning opportunities to improve your job search and career management skills. Pursue professional development by participating in classes, seminars, webinars, certifications and industry conferences. Take advantage of free and low-cost programs to enhance your credentials. Keeping informed of business trends will help you gain greater knowledge of the industries and careers that are poised for future growth. Stay plugged-in to the market and your field to ensure that you’ll be current, and to maintain your intellectual capital. Apply what you learn, and generate stronger search results.
