The cover story of the May issue of U.S. News & World Report is "Jobs For the Future." Lots of stuff to check out here about finding a job, keeping a job, who's hiring, career tips and more.
I am featured in a piece called "Thinking About the Unthinkable" (pg. 46 of the print edition), which appears online in slightly edited form as How to Prepare for a Layoff. Associate editor Liz Wolgemuth, who writes the "Inside Job" blog for USNews.com, heard I'd been laid off and asked me a great question: What would you have done if you'd known ahead of time that you were going to lose your job? I engaged in some 20/20 hindsight and gave her three ideas, which she explores in the column.
I hope you'll take a look. Who better to give career advice than an unemployed guy?
