Conducting a job search under any circumstances is no picnic. But managing a job search while you’re employed is brutal. I mean, really, the job search is supposed to be a full-time job for the unemployed. How does that work when you put in 40 or 50 hours each week at your company now? That is why the July 18th #TCFchat discussion topic (at our special time slot of 83pm ET on Twitter) is on topics to help those already employed as they prepare for the job search.
So please join us as we discuss these questions:
1. Will great perks like “paid, paid vacation” (http://www.inc.com/caitlin-berens/start-up-offers-workers-7500-to-take-a-break.html) convince you to stay in your current job, or make the leap to a new job if offered as part of your package?
2. Should you engage with IT or technical recruiters to help you with your job search?
3. How does someone that’s employed prepare themselves for a job search?
4. What expectations should you have when starting your tech job search?
5. Where should you spend the limited amount of time available with your job search?
Whether you are currently in a job search, have recently finished one, or are contemplating getting ready for one, we would love to hear your insight.
If you can’t make the chat, be sure to check back here afterward or check out the Tech Career Forum LinkedIn group to get a recap of the discussion.
