As a do-it-yourself type person, I like the idea of being independent and self-reliant. Especially when money is tight, I like to have the feeling that I can move things forward on my own.
However — unlike the old bike that I have half-way fixed, sitting in my garage — doing a job search is something that I can’t let wait. When money is tight, it’s hard to think about finding or paying for help, but if that help shortens time in job transition or gets that critical promotion, it is an investment worth considering.
The phrase “Time is money” sure rings true during job transition, when little or even no money is coming in.
Are you getting hired as fast as you think you should? No? Sometimes, things gotta change. Here are three signs that your job search may need you to step it up and get some more help:
2. You Care What People Think – you want people to understand your value better
3. You’re Ready To Do The Work – you realize you may be able to work smarter
