PRHR Contest: Your Best Advice for Job Seekers


America’s jobless rate in June is the highest rate since 1983. Some of my Punk Rock HR readers weren’t born in 1983, so this may be the first time many have experienced such a sad & depressing state of affairs in the job market.

It gets better. I promise.

I would like to spend the month of July offering honest, practical, and smart tips on my site. Most job seekers need a fistful of antidepressants, better resumes & interviewing techniques, and up-to-date accounts on LinkedIn. Those are basic competencies in this job market, right now.

  • What else?
  • What are people missing?
  • What’s the single best piece of career advice you can give to someone, right now, who really needs a job?

I have three boxes of swag from the most recent HR conference I attended. There’s everything from books to t-shirts to candy. If you submit an item of advice, you’ll be entered to win one of the boxes. I’ll do a video blog and announce the winners on Tuesday. l will provide the best piece of advice I have for anyone who needs a job, too.

Let’s hear your best Punk Rock HR advice for job seekers. Do your patriotic duty and share a piece of advice that is absolutely required in this job market.
