Now is the Time to Spring Clean Your Career; CareerBuilder Provides Important Career Tool for Uncertain Times
RESTON, Va., March 14 /PRNewswire/ -- CareerBuilder reminds workers to
make spring cleaning an essential part of their career development strategy.
On the CareerBuilder Network flagship site -- careerbuilder.com -- workers can
find unique features, advice and discussions on career spring cleaning.
"The job market remains robust, but recent layoff news is a reminder that
we all need to be constantly prepared for the unexpected," said CareerBuilder
Career Strategist Diane Strahan. "Don't wait for the day when you're forced
to update your resume and get re-connected to the job market. Reconnect now.
With very little work, CareerBuilder services enable you to stay plugged into
job opportunities at all times."
Job seekers remain on the move in 2001. A recent Job Satisfaction Survey,
conducted by SurveySite on behalf of CareerBuilder, found that nearly four in
10 U.S. workers are seeking new opportunities in 2001. For many job seekers,
remaining a constant player in the job market is part of everyday life. For
others, it's cause for anxiety.
Said one job seeker who participated on the Spring Clean Your Career
message board: "Is it wrong that I should be daydreaming all day about other
things, other jobs that I could be doing... ? Is this just a sign that I
need to leave my job and move on, or are we never satisfied?"
"At CareerBuilder, we believe that a new breed of worker is emerging --
the silent job seeker," Strahan said. "The silent job seeker is optimistic
and even satisfied with their current position, but don't confuse their
silence and satisfaction with job complacency. They understand the need of
being job connected."
Workers also agree that an organized approach to work and careers counts.
In a new CareerBuilder poll, seventy percent of job seekers said that
organization skills are necessary to get ahead in a career.
