As originally asked by Beth Hage.
With so many group members in transition, what can you share to help them?
Perhaps you have a link or resource to share, or a personal story how you found work in the industry despite long odds. Really, anything you can do to help your fellow member is appreciated.
You may need to consider training / education programmes and courses to upskill. These also serve to keep your knowledge as fresh as possible if there is no job on the horizon – periods of unemployment do not carry the stigma they once did but lack of activity during a period of unemployment does.
A good recruiter should be able to help you in terms of giving advice and may be able to help you find a new position. The challenge they have is that employers use recruiters to find people they cannot themselves – so expect them to supply a perfect fit.
Then, save, save, save. No, you do not need a $70/mo cable TV package or a $50/mo cell plan. If you consider striking out self-employed, and maybe you have to, you’ve got to develop a financial buffer that can at least tide you over six months.
And as Hank wrote in his blog, stay positive and keep in shape. Make sure to surround yourself with people and communities you can trust. For me that’s our church.
I’ll report back on this string as the idea comes together. It’s hyper-local and requires in-person interaction but we could try it using our [http://medgroup.biz/subgroups|leo://plh/http%3A*3*3medgroup%2Ebiz*3subgroups/6lc9?_t=tracking_disc] in well-developed cities.
First is the group itself. I curate content and protect the discussion page from spam and self-promotion to provide a truly valuable member experience.
Now’s the time for you to add meaningful comments on strings and, perhaps, start your own discussion. I know for a fact well-read and commented-upon discussions can yield opportunities as seen in these group-member testimonials: [http://linkd.in/new-business|leo://plh/http%3A*3*3linkd%2Ein*3new-business/Ftix?_t=tracking_disc].
1. We have a “Resource Discussion” right now featuring members looking for work at [http://linkd.in/In-Transition|leo://plh/http%3A*3*3linkd%2Ein*3In-Transition/Te4Q?_t=tracking_disc]. Leave your information there because I send many recruiters to that page.
2. Check this list of medical device recruiters who WANT you to find them! [http://medgroup.biz/MedDevRecruiters|leo://plh/http%3A*3*3medgroup%2Ebiz*3MedDevRecruiters/WQIv?_t=tracking_disc].
3. Join our Careers subgroup at [http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=4241076|leo://plh/http%3A*3*3www%2Elinkedin%2Ecom*3groups%3Fgid%3D4241076/Mipq?_t=tracking_disc]. You might also join location-based subgroups near you at [http://bit.ly/MDGsubgroups|leo://plh/http%3A*3*3bit%2Ely*3MDGsubgroups/Hz6P?_t=tracking_disc]; perhaps where you live (for in-person networking) and in the cities where you’d consider relocating.
