The employment situation in America is more unstable than it has been in generations.  Finding a job in this economy is not easy, and it is more art than science.  Many people face the challenge of transferring their skills to new opportunities as old ones decline.

During this episode of Italian Tomatoes on BlogTalkRadio, we focus on the task of finding a job in America’s new normal.

Today’s job market is characterized by seemingly endless restructurings, downsizings and layoffs, events which often strike with little warning and force people to pack up their skill sets and set off to find new career paths. We will use Australia’s unofficial national anthem as our muse, which tells the tale of an itinerant laborer living in unfortunate times.

Social media plays a big role in the modern employment market, so the podcast focuses on two enormously helpful applications: LinkedIn and Glass Door. These are just the tip of the iceberg. Everyone needs to customize their search technique, and there is an array of resources to help with that. Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that you are not alone. People whom you already know will be quite willing to lend a hand. Human resources experts emphasize that networking skills are as important as credentials, and an investment in them, which can be daunting at first, will pay big dividends in the future.
