In this video, Patra Frame explains four things to do right away to address those two unemployment issues:
1. Brush up on your skills by attending classes, workshops, and seminars. List those classes on your resume.
2. Remain active in your professional groups. Networking among colleagues may help you find a great job lead, as well as give you a relevant current activity to put on your resume.
3. Volunteer at organizations that are meaningful to you and, if possible, relevant to your career. Your volunteerism can be presented in your Experience section as your current "job title."
4. Take temp or interim jobs that provide income during your job search. Include these temporary assignments as current employment in the Experience section of your resume and online profile.
To see how some of these ideas look in "print," check out these sample resumes with current unemployment in their Experience sections.
