MAYFIELD, Oh.
– Over the past several years, too many people know the feeling of being out of
work. If you are one you know the struggles that come with finding work.

Finding a
job becomes a full-time job in itself, just without the income and benefits,
but it can be equally frustrating as working.

Those have
been unemployed over the past several years have learned how difficult it could
be. Despite your background and what you may have to offer a potential
employer, you face competition from several others, possibly hundreds competing
for the same job you may be applying for.

During a job
search, many will become Linkedin experts, trying to utilize the professional
networking website to their benefit. The resume and cover letter may be touched
up several times and the use of professional job coaches and staffing agencies
also becomes a resource all in the quest to find a job.

Something
also to consider is the job you apply for, interview for and may even be offered,
may not suit your requirements. Whether it’s because of the income level, hours
or days of employment or benefits package, job applicants also have to find the
match that also suits their needs and hope their next employer has an interest
in them as well. Not only are the employers searching for the most-qualified
candidate, but job-seekers too need to search for the best-suited company and
position.

Those out of
work, have several avenues to consider. Aside from the obvious desire to begin
a new career, some, depending on their age, may also consider retirement.
Others still too, based on their experience, may consider self-employment and
this is definitely an option for several people.

If this is
something you have considered, whether you are out of work or not, the “Be Your
Own Boss” program at 7 p.m. Jan. 14 at the Mayfield branch of the Cuyahoga
County Public Library, 500 SOM Center Road, can offer some tips for you.

Advisors of Cleveland can offer some tips on learning how to research and
develop your concept to get your business off the ground.
