Job Search – Actionable Items To Complete

Someone else tweeted a good article about actionable items to take care of during a job search. It’s always good to set small goals that you can actually achieve.

Even with how busy I’ve been on my job search, I’ve been doing most of these. This blog is one of them. I’ve been working on the infrastructure of the site for a couple weeks. Just this morning, I found a copy of ALL the posts I’ve lost from eons ago when I was posting more regularly. Watch for those to get uploaded this week as soon as I can tackle that small job! I want to back up everything first, then see about syncing the files. We’ll see what happens! I’m excited about getting that lost information back up here. There’s not a lot of massive posts with truly insightful information. However, it’s a lot of how I’ve been thinking over the years. That’s why I’m excited to get it back.

This blog will continue to be just short snippets of information that I find. It’s a place for me to collect my thoughts and post information that I want to find later. And to show what my general philosophies are about work and life in general.

Being laid off

Read a great article a couple months ago about being laid off. If you’ve prepared properly, this is worth doing.


I was laid off a fair number of years ago. I couldn’t afford lots of down time. However, I did make time to enjoy myself during my search. Since then, I’ve made sure to follow some of this advice even while on the job. You should do the same!


Is your life “stacked”?

I read an article today about Business Architecture. After reading it, I realized they were talking more about small businesses and the concepts they need to keep in mind for their business to succeed.


Then I remembered that we are all independent contractors of a sort. We just hire our skills out to various companies and get paid for that work. We generally call that a job.


If we are independent contractors to ourselves, we have our own personal small business. Why shouldn’t we have these concepts for ourselves? What is your mission? Values statement? 
I’m not 100% sure of mine. I have some ideas, but have never written them down. I think I’ll do that this week. Watch this space for more info!
