Hello

There has been a topic flirting around for a while, with regards to alternate ways of tackling the recession and through personal experience, I found interesting to refer to this and assist other HR professionals, who might be experiencing similar situations in the minute.

It is recommended to use your skills and energy, which is a way to keep up with the market as well, by working in a project or/and why not create one for yourself. Since, I am looking for a role in our sector for a while, I thought why not take advantage of a resource in my hands ( a business in a similar to the HR sector-skills wised, but more relevant to the communications and marketing sector) and actually use this on my benefit. Previous experience used, either voluntarily or payable (even better!), still outweights any drawbacks. 

In the end, this proved to be quiet beneficial for the below reasons.

- Brought in the surface more skills-could not think they existed.

- Enhanced social and communicative abilities.

- Built up an engaged network.

- Expanded market knowledge and cross sector industries, by researching various    

  companies and exploring new opportunities. 

- New horizons increased positivity and strengthened ways of thinking.

- The business can make a recommendation on your behalf.

In a nutsell, there are ways to tackle the issue and challenge your mindset, which can lead to the next job opportunity, as long as you keep using and/or figuring out new skills/ways.

    Hello

     In continuation to the project mentioned for working through the recession project, as a Chartered member of the CIPD, I would like to publicise the link, that shows an outcome of the efforts.

    Hi Vasiliki,

    I'm the Community Manager here and I am struggling to see how relevant the Action Aid link is to your earlier post. Looking again at the original attachment also confused me a bit.

    Maybe I'm the only one though.

    I just saw the post you made and in response to the relevance of the link above, this is the outcome of the project I worked to date and I am publicising in the Forum to share within the Community.

    I got in touch with ActionAid to get nvolved in the Global Emergencies Team and since I am looking for work, I was interested in using my interest and experience for a charity to support campaigns, events etc: see above (create a project). Also, this is linked to activity occuring in the Business I currently support, marketing-communications.

     Overall, and to recap the project is about brand development for a business based overseas, family business, and I have started thinking (whilst looking for a job in London) on how best I can create a role and use L&D skills.

    The links demostrate the outcome of the communications, involvement and brand building advertising, whilst proggresing on the role I created to survive to date!

     Thanks for being in touch and asking the question, which I hope I have clarified.
