Looking for a new job? Read this

Today, millions of people around the world are looking for a new job and still counting. But actually, they can be divided into two groups only; the ones who don't have a job right now and the ones who are are currently employed but not satisfied. Apparently, I now belong to the first group.

Nevertheless, I have been employed for more than 16 years in 9 different companies. I therefore think that I have many interesting things to share when it comes to looking for a new job.

Most jobless individuals today are getting frustrated to get a job. With this, some of them don't even think twice before accepting a job offer as long they feel that the salary is big enough especially if they have a family to feed. In fact, some of them don't consider their safety anymore and even work at places where the government don't allow them such as in Afghanistan. I don't blame them though especially if they think it's the only choice they have.

But come to think of it, there's always a better way. Here in the Philippines, a government agency called TESDA is teaching workers in different skills and even help them find a job afterward. Besides the free training, students are also earning allowances during the training period. These days, people should be flexible enough to learn new skills and search for another career.

For those who are currently employed but still looking for a new job, it is but natural to dream for a greener pasture. Some of them are even worried that they will be laid off soon since the worldwide economy is not yet that stable. However, they should not be blinded at once with the high salary offer. They should also know how stable that company is, especially during this recession period. Otherwise, they may end up looking for a new job again sooner than they expect.

In both cases, people should understand that having no job does not mean it's the end of the world for them. After all, having a job is not the only way to make money. There are times that you can even make more money if you don't have a job.
