Review Your Finances • Do not use up all your savings. • Should have enough savings to cover at least three to six months' expenses. • There's more to fall back on if an emergency arises, so save accordingly.
Friend Network • Most established companies have an employee referral programme. • It's good to check back with your friends to see if they know of any job openings in their intranet.
Try College Placement Cells • HR heads say they often get resumes of alumni of a particular college whenever they're looking to hire employees. • This way, they can hire an employee who is out of a job when they can't afford to wait any more for them to come on board.
Use Time Well • Use the time gap between jobs fruitfully. • Research your dream job or company, network, finish the book you always wanted to read, reconnect with your hobbies. • Sitting idle breeds negativity
Add to Skills • Enroll in a course or activity during your employment. • This will keep you occupied and also help you gain a skill that will add value to your CV when you apply for the next job.
