I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter, a coach who helps people professionally in
a number of different ways and I'm back with an "I told you so."
About two years ago I started to say to people the next recession's
coming. I don't know when but the next recessions on its way" . . . and we've got
worse than that. We've gotten to . . . I don't know if it's depression. A lot of
other people define it but if you're one of the 33 million people who's lost
their jobs since this all started it's a depression right now
My point here is what I told people to do at that time was to spend time
putting their network in place networking with individuals starting to
create an online presence for themselves--so recruiters could find them. Now, in the
last period of time it's been next to impossible for people to find work I
know it helped people find work and some have but it's hard because with
distancing and the like you know it's just not an easy thing to do but as
people start to come out of the bunker and start returning to work in offices
even in this modified way firms are going to recognize that it's necessary
to fill positions and your network is going to be the most important part of
this because you think they're gonna take absolute strangers and hire them or
do you think it's gonna be part of a recommendation that they're gonna
receive that's going to advantage someone to cut to the front of the line.
That's what networking does for people. It helps you cut to the front of
the line and thus, I'm gonna tell you now it's not too late. You've got time where
you can do this but you gotta start now reaching back to people who you've known
in your past. Now some may be in the same boat as you and that's okay. Maybe you
can help them but fundamentally you've got to start networking
now if you haven't been doing it two years ago was the best time you didn't
have to act like one of those people you know hey it's been a long time but you
can't drop a text or an email to someone said and say you know feels like it's
been a hundred years since we were last in contact. I just wanted to see how you work and whether
you're okay and wait for a response you've got to start networking because
the statistics are clear that networking is the way that most people find work
get out there start talking to people hope you found this helpful and I told
you so! And if you're interested in one-on-one
