So Your Friends Have All Been Fired

December 7, 2009

Breathe a sigh of relief, you’ve made this cut. But in this job market, it can always be a craps shoot.

Here are a few ideas to be ready for any situation:

  1. Update your resume
  2. Start looking for jobs in your market/area
  3. Google yourself
  4. Hide (un-tag) embarrassing photos of yourself online
  5. Buy a new suit or two and shoe polish
  6. Get involved in anything new in your field
  7. Reconnect with your network
  8. Make your voice mail message more professional
  9. Become a better employee

    BONUS TIP: Get a head shot.

    This will allow you to put your best foot forward on all of your social networks. You don’t need to pay any money just get dressed up in a shirt and tie, or a work appropriate attire and take a well cropped photo. Just something that doesn’t look like it was taken at a bar at 1am.
