Are you laid off or underemployed? Learn how to reinvent your career

Posted: Updated:

Hiring slowed sharply in March, with the economy adding just 88,000 jobs.

That rate is the lowest monthly gain since last June. It's also a drop of more than 100,000 jobs compared to March of 2012.

The Labor Department's monthly jobs report finds the unemployment rate slipped to 7.6 percent.  The agency is also reporting nearly 500,000 people dropped out of the labor market last month

So what do you do if you've recently been laid off or maybe you feel like you're underemployed?  Mike Stafford from CEG Partners explains how you can turn this into a good thing. Watch the video to find out how or click here if you can't see the video above.
