5 First Steps to On Ramping

  1. Contact every person you know and let them know you are looking to get back in the work force. Don’t forget your stay at home friends, they all have working husbands, sisters etc.
  2. Update your resume; the rules and norms have changed.
  3. Send your resume to all friends who are in hiring positions.
  4. Create a list of companies where your friends work and search the job postings every evening.
  5. Join a networking group that meets weekly for fresh ideas, encouragement and networking.

  1. Quit yer crabbin and get the hell out there. Go to Job Seekers, and at least provide a brief bio on thier Job Seekers bio list that is emailed out to lots of Recruiters. Soon they will be calling to meet you and find out about you. More eyes out there with a focus on you is better than what you have today. Have you finished that resume yet?
