Even if you are currently jobless, you still need to remain connected and active to make the most of networking opportunities. Many very talented individuals have been out of work for extended periods of time as the country continues to recover from the economic recession. In response to market demand, new companies are emerging that allow the unemployed to remain active and current while learning new skills, helping others, contributing to important issues, expanding their networks, and filling in the “hole” that may exist on their resumes. Some of the newest companies moving onto the scene are CreateTheGood.org, UpwardlyGlobal.org, and voluntourism organizations. Keep a keen eye out for new ones on the horizon, and start getting involved!
