How Will the Election Season Impact Your Career?

How Will the Election Season Impact Your Career?

Traditionally, the last quarter of the year and especially in December, employers are very busy making hiring, firing, and promoting decisions. This year, the results of the presidential election could have a significant impact on employer behavior.

Accelerate Your Job Search

I am concerned that many jobseekers, especially those that are suddenly unemployed, are not moving efficiently and effectively to capture their next position. If you recently lost your job, I highly recommend that YOU do not take several weeks off before beginning your job campaign. Think of this quarter as the last quarter of the year. Accelerate your job search with passion, precision, and planning.
Employed and hearing rumors of your company merging, downsizing, or closing? Do not wait to find out whether the rumors are true. Begin your job search right now! Remember, YOU can always turn down an offer!

Expecting a promotion? Take charge and actively pursue that promotion immediately. If you are told that the promotion will not become effective for several months, determine if the employer is purposely delaying for some unexplained reason which may or may not be related to the election.

I do not know what the impact of the election could have on your career. What I do know is that employers react strongly to changes or potential changes which they believe will have a positive or negative impact on their bottom line. I do not want you to become an unfortunate victim.

Your resume is an ad.
Does it work?

If you know that your resume has not been an effective ad in capturing a new position, I suggest that you email the resume to me. I will review the first 10 resumes that I receive and give you feedback. I must receive your resume no later than
Friday, June 29th at 6PM PT.
