According to the Department of Labor, there were 146,000 job gains last month, however, 7.5 million Americans are still unemployed. The American worker is faced with finding the "American dream," in the mist of an American economy nightmare. How can todayÂs workforce "fight back" and win in spite of the economic stats and realities of the todayÂs employment situations?
The market demands that career seekers elevate themselves to performance employees and become the top "10 -30%" to get hired. This can be accomplished with a simple career improvement formula: decrease your competition. Performance employees, who use action-oriented career strategies, will increase interview results and employment opportunities, especially in todayÂs global workplace.
