Yes, it’s a fact of life: you may be unemployed at some point, or at least know someone who is.
Nothing shameful at all in that: you just need to move along in the next positive step in your career.
For some the steps along are longer in between: age/race/gender discrimination exists to be sure. But skill sets mature and become obsolescent too and if you have a set that is no longer needed, you need to adapt.
What better way to show your true values and capabilities than LinkedIn?
I am NOT speaking of copy/paste your resume to LinkedIn. That’s wrong.
As I told 2 groups of attendees yesterday, the underemployed need to step out from the crowd; be a yellow guy in the sea of blue guys who blend together in the mind of the hiring manager.
Tell “why you,” a lot in different ways throughout your LinkedIn profile.
Fun? Easy? Nope.
Now do it.
