Have You Lost Your Job?
Are you faced with having to make a career change because you were laid off or your business went under? You are not alone; in April of 2010 the national unemployment rate was 9.9% or about 15.3 million people. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics classified about 7.25 million of those people as being out of work for over 26 weeks which officially labels them as “long term” unemployed.
My Job Is Safe…Right?
Unemployment is not gender specific as female percentages increased by 81%. Construction and manufacturing jobs were hit very hard but “white collar” positions felt the squeeze as well. A career change this late in the game can be very unsettling to say the least and can make the most confident individual feel helpless. If you are like most people and have substantial bills and responsibilities (kids, wife, and bookie) then locking into the next four years at Harvard might be a little unrealistic.
You’ll Find A New Job In A Couple Weeks?
I’ve heard it said that when one door closes that another will open but with the stress of being jobless the last thing you are looking for is a door. You’ve cleaned up your resume, told all your buddies that you have to use them as a reference and now the waiting begins. Fortunately we have unemployment benefits but that will only keep you afloat for so long.
This Little Piggy Went To The Network Market.
Have you ever thought or heard about network marketing? You can become a network marketer regardless of your past work or credit history and you can be your own boss for less than a few hundred dollars. I will warn you that if you are looking to get rich quick and put forth very little effort…you will lose money and you will fail. If you are someone who always works hard and is not afraid to do the little things to be the best, (all successful business owners have this trait) network marketing could be for you.
