When a country goes into recession it can impact careers and make the job-hunting process more complicated; however, just because it isn’t easy to get a job during this time doesn’t mean it’s impossible. A great way to get a job is by focusing your efforts on jobs in growing industries and demonstrating how your work has generated revenue for your past employers. Distinguish yourself from the rest of the job seekers competing for positions in a down economy. The best way to do this is by concentrating on about five companies in the growing industry that you have chosen and do your research. With your research, tailor your resume according to those companies and what will make them connect with you; even if that means having five different resumes.
