With the downturn in the economy and with whole industries contracting with huge layoffs, many job-seekers need to consider alternative directions while they determine a new option. “Plan B” jobs are positions that people seek to “bridge the gap” either financially and/or emotionally. These jobs provide needed structure, a bit of financial relief and an expanded network that might lead to a new opportunity. Plan B jobs are best when the job seeker can view the opportunity as “fun” or a nice change from their former “corporate rat race”.
Examples of Plan B jobs are:
Starbucks, Home Health Care, Daycare worker, Delivery Driver, Census Worker, Retail, etc.
