Seeking New Employment

If it becomes necessary at any time for you to seek new employment, one of the difficulties is in knowing which companies have vacancies and what those vacancies are. Fortunately for those that know about the OFCCP website, they can find job vacancies for many different companies, all the companies in fact, which work on government contracts. It is the task of the OFCCP (Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs to ensure that all companies which receive government contracts, adhere to government policies regarding fully publishing any job vacancies and they also comply with a hiring policy in a non-discriminating manner.

As the OFCCP are aware of any job vacancies any of these companies may have, they publish them on their website where they are displayed by area. This can make job hunting far easier for many people looking for work but unfortunately, not all the unemployed are aware of its existence and so, therefore, struggle to look for vacancies. Finding an appropriate vacancy though is only the first part of finding suitable employment as after that will come the submitting of an application and then hopefully, an interview.

In order to be fully prepared for what may hopefully come, anyone finding themselves unemployed should immediately ensure that their resume and other paperwork is complete and up to date. Having a good, well-presented resume is vital if you want to be successful in acquiring the position applied for. The reason for this is that most companies will read resumes and only request interviews with those whose resumes fit their needs. Any resume should be factual and full, providing a potential employer with a full background on your achievements in work experience and also your level of education and any awards you may have been awarded.

There are times when some people find that the work they have been doing has become redundant due to recent technology taking away human jobs. If you find yourself in this position, you may want to consider taking an additional training course but the problem with that is that they cost money and being unemployed you may not have any. The government, however, is aware of this situation which some people find themselves in and provide possible assistance. The assistance the government offers in some of these situations is financial help in meeting the cost of a training course. These training programs which the government may award financial assistance with are managed and monitored by the National Center for Financial Education (NCFE) and full details of any of their programs can be found on their website.

The fact that the OFCCP list all job vacancies by area is useful however some people may not be able to find a suitable job unless they relocate and this can be both tiresome and expensive. Although if you do have to relocate in order to find employment, it is worth checking with the IRS as under certain conditions they may allow for you to claim those relocation expenses on your next tax return.
