I really like what Clark Howard says in his article on CNN.com, What To Do If You’re Laid Off.  I want to share it with you.

What I learned from the article:  I had never heard of LaidOffCamp — love it! 

One thing Clark forgot to mention:  LinkedIn.  Maybe because he’s assuming everyone already knows about it and knows how to use it.  But that’s not the case.  I have career coaching clients who are networking on LinkedIn for the first time after our first session.  LinkedIn is critical to finding TARGETED contacts, possible mentors and EVEN a job that is posted and listed through the many online groups you can join on the site.  

I’ve hosted a free “How to use LinkedIn to find a job” telecass a couple of months ago.  Time for another one?  

Please let me know if you’re interested in that and I’ll set something up with one of my affiliated career coaches — comment below or email me at brian@briankurth.com if you are interested and I’ll set something up….

Cheers!
Brian
