A tuff row to hoe!! May 5, 2011

Well I am sure that the latest news of unemployment jumping up have some of you pulling your hair out or becoming despaired.  It certainly isn’t making your life any easier especially if you are a 27+ weeker.

It may be time to face the reality that our nation is in deep trouble and the end doesn’t seem to be in sight. You may have to face the facts that the job you use to do is not going to be available for some time. The last I heard was 2018 to get back to prerecession numbers and that may not be that solid now.

I am not being negative here I am being realistic and it is time for you to do the same. What was your fall back plan your plan B? Did you have one?

It is time for some deep reflection and skill analysis and ask yourself what else can I do that would get me hired somewhere.

I myself am having a hard time having been a 27+weeker and took a job at Lowe’s working weekends and holidays. I work $20 hrs a week for about $11/hr. It isn’t as living but I can survive with the help of my oldest son.

My background was in electronics and management but I have come to the realization that those jobs are gone and that companies are no longer interested in what is being deemed servant leadership.

I have the business I started in 2010 just before my benefits ran out and it is a struggle in this economy to find work but yet I refuse to give in.

I will find a way to get back on my feet and be proud again. I am sure that you can do the same. It is time to re-invent yourself in order to survive.

We cannot rely on corporate America to fix themselves any time soon as they have learned to operate lean and mean and are going to stay that way. The mergers and acquisitions that are still going on will mean less jobs not more.

Until they realize they are killing themselves slowly corporations will continue to operate with their heads in the sand.

We cannot wait for them to get their heads out of their …..well lets not go there!

It is time for us to move on and forward!
