12 Ways to Shorten Your Unemployment by 90 Days

By CAREEREALISM-Approved Expert, Andy Robinson Most senior executives have never faced the prospect of prolonged unemployment. Add to that a hyper-competitive job market and the realities of not generating income for the foreseeable future, and we all tend to get overwhelmed. But if you look at it from a different perspective, this just might be one of the most opportune times in your life to grow as a person and as a professional. For perhaps the first time since college you have an opportunity to focus your energy towards self improvement, rather than pouring your sweat and tears to achieve somebody else's goals. If you know where to focus that energy, you might just come out of this transition more empowered and self-aware than you’ve been in a long time. And if you’ve ever conducted a job interview, you know there are few things more attractive than a viable candidate who exudes confidence and has a strong sense of purpose (an excerpt from the e-book, "I'm In Transition, Now What?") So....you're in transition, now what? Wouldn't it be nice to have a concise, easy-to-read guide that could get you started off on the right foot and maybe even shorten your path back to steady income? Good news!
