Losing your job can be a good thing in your life, but you must treat looking for work as a job.  Get up, get dressed, get the plan in hand for the day and get going!

If you suddenly fired from a company, this is really difficult to get a new job instantly. You will have to keep patience, use social networking to get a right job. You will have to have great understanding about the market.

@Hospice_Houngbo and Ruth,

I learn a lot from your advises. The right person with the right skills will be hired.

HH, 

Thanks. 

"I think the longer you are out of work, less qualified you become as your skills may no longer fit the present job requirements" 

That makes sense; especially with everything changing so fast. 

Yes, not even here generalizations are good. I was thinking of some people who have been unemployed for some long time, and find it hard to find a job. Some have kept on sending resumés with no luck. What you say makes sense, but some times it's not really the person's fault, is it? 

On the other hand, some others take that time for learning new skills, or study something new for a career change. So, once again, I would say everything should be taken as an individual case. Well, I always prefer indivialism rather than a bag of generalizations. :)

@Ruth...I really like your list and it really doesn't matter if you are protecting a career or not. This was a great list for personal development, job seeker or not. I found myself looking at your article and seeing where I did or didn't match up. With my iPad I subscribe to Bloomberg Business Week and also take in WSJ live every morning. Also i read China Daily for overseas news and several other periodicals on current business affairs and technology news. I would say I spend about an one and a half hours a day just reading. Popular Science has some really great tech introductions and Design News for the Nitty Gritty details on manufacturer new product introductions. Reading the various EBN posts connects me to an intelligent and interesting community and I find that I am in a continual learning mode when I read replies to my own blogs. I don't do Facebook or Tweet, but EBN and LinkedIn really round out my online social experience. Thanks for a great article.

You mention a good point.  Recruiters are looking for exactly what the hiring manager demands.  Finding people at your target companies to help you is important.  They may be able to "sell" you to the hiring manager.

@ehcanada, I like your advice, but spending time promoting yourself on social platforms online may not help you if you don't have the required skills. Being visible online is great, but many other potential competitors are doing the same.

@Ruth, I understand your point. The skills in demand will likely found jobs faster, and after a certain time out of job, people should consider upgrading their skills. Not always easy, but there are many self taught courses online that may help. But it doesn't give you the experience potential recruiters may be looking for.
