We are in a recession YIPEEE! Yea Right! Times are hard yes, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t need a great game plan. Here is a really simple way to get started on how to re-enter the workforce that I found on the World Wide Web.
The Job Search Plan
To help job seekers think about the different kinds of jobs they may want to pursue and to come up with a list of places they can visit to learn more about those jobs.
