Being Flexible in your job hunt in this Economy


I’m a big fan of DailyWorth. I read an article yesterday titled How Flex Should You Be in Your Job Hunt? You can find it here.

How far would you go to find a job in this economy? I was very thankful to find a job just a short few weeks after I graduated from college. However, some of my friends graduated just this past May, and are not having as much luck. Most of them have not found jobs, even though that graduated from very good universities. Some of them are going to get their Masters since they have been unable to find jobs.


I would think about taking one of the entry level jobs. You never know where it can take you. I am pretty fresh out of college (just graduated in the spring of 2010) and I was always told that if you can’t find a job which fits exactly what you’re looking for, to take one that is somewhat similar. That way, when you do find the job that fits you better, your resume will still reflect that you were improving your skills and not just sitting back letting your skills go to waste.

Some people are forced to take jobs which do not apply to where they want to be or where there degree was supposed to take them. Some are forced to take entry level jobs even though they are mid or senior level management. In this economy, taking a job, any job, might be good for you. You never know where it could take you.

However, my friend recently applied for a job through a friend and she was told to leave out information on her year long, unpaid, full-time internship because it did not necessarily pertain to the job field for which she was applying to.

What do you think? Would you take any job? Here are some facts from the Rutgers Survey:

  1. 65% would take a lower salary

  2. 59% would accept a lower-status job

  3. 70% would accept a temporary job

Would you take any job? What would you do?
