Save your job in recession

Here are four ways to save your job in times of recession: 

Update your skills

Keep building skills that add value to you as an employee. If your current job is not salvageable, no matter how many extra skills you have tallied up, then at least hunting for a new gig will become a whole lot easier with your bulked-up resume.

Network
Make a list of at least 10 business contacts and start locking in times to catch up. They might find you a brilliant new job sooner than expected, be able to help you out if things go bust at your current employer or, at the very least, be fun to have a drink with.

Keep an eye out
It pays to always be one step ahead of the game and, if you are going to have to start a job search, it’s good to be aware of what’s out there. That said; don’t jump too soon. If you know a new job could be waiting in the wings, it’s definitely worth picking up a solid redundancy payout on the way out the door.

Get a job where there is a skills shortage
Despite a slowdown in residential construction, builders, plumbers and other trades are still in high demand on commercial projects. Health and education are resilient regardless of economic growth or decline. Find your niche and stick to it!

We are glad to inform to you that the launch of www.naukriforwomen.com is LIVE NOW. The first and most valid benefit that will accrue to job seekers on www.naukriforwomen.com is that there will be no male competitors. This means that more than half of the competition has already been eliminated!
