“Survival Job” a Stepping Stone

Many new Canadians, indeed many Canadians out of work these days, accept jobs that keep food on the table, and the rent paid but lack the meaning of work in their own industry or preferred job. There are advantages to taking this type of “survival job” as long as it doesn’t become an obstacle in your longer term plan of landing a position appropriate to your skills and needs. “Being unemployed for any length of time is a blow to our egos, but being back in the work force may be just the confidence-booster needed to help find a new job in your field” says Lisa Miller, chief people officer at CareerConnection, a networking and career management organization.

Canadian Immigrant magazine offers other tips for this situation including persisting through some long days and evening job searches, so that eventually the little steps get you where you want to be.
