Job Action Day is right around the corner! In fact, it’s exactly one week away – it takes place on Monday, November 2, 2015. But if you’re planning to participate, it’s not too late.
Before we tell you how you can get involved, here’s a quick refresher on the movement itself:
Job Action Day—for those who haven’t heard—began in 2008 when the team at Quintcareers.com decided to solicit blogs, tips, lessons learned, and personal stories from experts and laypeople across the working world. The intensions were humble and simple: they wanted to provide job seekers and everyday working people with tools and information that could help them reach their professional goals. The day was a hit, and since then, this annual event has evolved into a growing movement.
How can you be part of the action?
- If you’re a mover and shaker in the career space, contribute to a blog or website that’s all about the modern workplace, or have simply devoted your social profile to weighing in on job issues, you can contribute by writing an article about this year’s theme: ‘Act II – Finding Career Satisfaction After 50’. For more information on how to partake, visit the Job Action Day website.
- If you don’t plan to make your voice heard, you can still participate by marking your calendar and visiting our blog and the Job Action Day site on the day to absorb all of the valuable information about this year’s theme. Find time-tested tips about embarking on the job search as a baby boomer, advice on how to combat age discrimination in the workplace, articles on why workers who are 50+ make the most valuable employees, and more.
At this point, Job Action Day is a well-known and widely anticipated event that resonates with job seekers and employers in every industry. And here at MyPerfectResume, we’re fully on board. We support the goals of this movement, and we’re honored to participate in an event that helps workers and jobseekers move forward in their career journey.
If you’re looking for work and getting frustrated, you’re not alone, and this movement can break the bubble of isolation and fear that often keeps job seekers from moving forward. If you have a job but feel like you’re not progressing in your career, Job Action Day can connect you to a wealth of advice that can motivate you to grow.
Job Action Day can give you the tools and information you need to reach the next rung of the ladder, regardless of your age or experience level.
