Being laid off creates shock, stress, worry, and many other emotions. But dislocated workers must not let their reactions and feelings get in the way of taking fast action in the job search. Here are the three biggest mistakes the unemployed make and must be proactive about as soon as they get a pink slip:

  • They don't apply for unemployment insurance or seek help from American Job Centers. People don't apply for UI for many reasons. Be sure you are educating the unemployed, the soon-to-be unemployed, and Key Mistakes After Layoffseven the general public about UI and your many job search, career, and training services.
  • They "take a break" before starting a job hunt. Skills, contacts, self-image, and motivation can fade rapidly. Two weeks "off" can turn into two months...or more. So encourage the unemployed to start job hunting immediately.
  • They are passive at job searching. Applying for jobs online may feel like a positive activity. But most of those job applications go into a black hole. So it’s key that job seekers understand they must network and reach out to employers who need their experience, even if no jobs are advertised. 

Want to give dislocated workers the best guidance on active job searching?
