This is so ironic it’s almost comical. My job has been outsourced. As in, the entire sales and marketing functional area. Did I mention I was the Director of Sales for a BPO (business process outsourcer)?
So, I thought I'd make a "project" thread about the process of me looking for work; since I'm never short on ideas about everyone else's job search My target is to have a job or offer by Nov 15. If I don't have something by that point, I won't expect anything until February 2013.
I've been casually looking for a few months anyway, so it's not like I'm at ground zero, but still, I'd have much rather found a job while I was employed. Oh well, the time off will be nice to spend with the kids. I love this time of year anyway.
I plan to use the hunt and steal method as opposed to applying for jobs. I'll post some screen shots of how I track the jobs I'm trying to land and the type of information I use to contact the people doing the hiring.
Hit me with any questions or comments.
