According to this news article the unemployment rate is rising. That’s not good.
Plan A: Get a new job (not working out so well)
Plan B: Get more serious about job search, become a guerrilla job seeker.
Plan C: Start a company (business plan, get funding, get office space, develop product, marketing, etc.)
Plan D: set up some business muses (fascinating concept – read this Four Hour Workweek blog post on 4 muses)
Plan E: move in with parents
Plan Z: move in with in-laws
I don’t know what your alternative plans are. I didn’t know what mine where, they somehow unfolded. They are still changing.
A long job search really stinks, no doubt about that. Let me invite you to list your alternatives and give them serious consideration. Maybe you aren’t meant to have a traditional job anymore….?
