Looking for job vacancies is something most of us would have done at some point in our lives with differing results. Most of us would have found that finding a job vacancy appropriate to our knowledge or experience is not always that easy to do but today there is an easier way thanks to the OFCCP. The OFCCP which stands for Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is part of the department of labor and although its main task is to ensure companies which succeed in getting government contracts to abide by government regulations, they also maintain lists of job vacancies for those that do meet OFCCP compliance regulations.
Apart from maintaining job vacancies which they list by areas, the OFCCP also ensure that any companies applying for government contracts operate a nondiscrimination hiring practice among other things. As most companies and businesses would appreciate a government contract within their relevant fields, the lists contain a wide diversity of jobs and so can be very beneficial to anyone that finds themselves unemployed. In fact, many people look at the OFCCP list for their area prior to looking elsewhere.
Being unemployed is no fun and hard financially and so most people that want a career change will look for a job to go to before they leave their current job, however, there are also many people that have no choice as they are fired, sometimes with a very little warning. If you come under the latter group you will certainly want to find new employment as soon as possible and as the OFCCP lists are maintained with current vacancies, it is perhaps the first place you should look.
There are times when you may feel like a change in careers and at those times there is another government department which can help and that is The National Center for Financial Education (NCFE) who have their own website. On the website, they will give information about any financial assistance which can be given for job training which could help afford you a different career.
The OFCCP keep lists of job vacancies by area as they appreciate the problems associated with relocating in order to find work. Re-locating to find work is something which should perhaps be avoided unless you particularly want to move and the reason for this is that it involves far more than just moving your desk supplies. When relocating for any reason, it is always stressful, first finding a new home and then making all the arrangements for the move including finding new schools but at least if you are relocating for purposes of work, you may be allowed to submit your moving expenses on your next tax return.
The expense of moving can, of course, be a problem, especially if you are currently unemployed and so for that reason and of course because you may not know how long you will be unemployed, you should budget wisely whilst looking for a vacancy and try and plan all your expenditures frugally.
