Six Things To Do Now For Your 2012 Job Search.

If you love your job and wouldn’t dream of leaving it — and on top of that, if you have an employment agreement that guarantees your employment through 2012 or a suitable cash equivalent — you can stop reading this column now. We’re delighted for you. Everyone else might take a look at our list of six things you can do now to start prepping for your post-New Year’s job search, whether you’re working somewhere and planning a getaway, or on the job market full-time.

You might be one of the estimated 84 percent of working Americans who planned to jump to a better job at the first opportunity this year.

My point is that everything included on our list of six get-ready/get-going items below is easy to do. It doesn’t take a long time, and if you’re like most people, you’ll have the bit of downtime in December you’ll need to start putting your 2012 job search engine together.   Get the rest of this terrific read by Liz Ryan at the Huffingtonpost.com.
