IDEAS FOR A CHALLENGING ECONOMY
June 2010 Edition

Welcome to Behind The Mike's Ideas For A Challenging Economy. On this monthly segment, Executive Career Coach Kay Stout co-hosts the show and we explore the ways in which you can find new work, better work or just plain work. These tips are provided on the air free as a service to the global community by the WBTM Radio Network and The Behind The Mike Show.

This month we spoke about the importance of making career decisions from the heart and not a mental decision as the mental decisions lead to potential mistakes and regrets. Kay stressed the importance to consider a position that would benefit you with a total package including byt not limited to benefits, scheduling, etc and not always the almighty dollar.

Another item spoken about was that perhaps the better positions based on what we spoke of above may be able to be obtained by looking into employment with a smaller, private and local firm. The "Big Machine" is not necessarily the best option for everyone. One way to start your search is to look into your local Chamber of Commerce to see what companies are in your area and may be hiring.

Speaking of Chamber of Commerce, Kay stated that many of the local CoC have an insurance pool whereas small business members can join. This could be a valuable resource for insurance coverage if you are considering self-employment options.
