If you’re starting to look for a job, make sure you’re "employable."

For example, if you lack reliable child care, transportation to a job, updated job skills and appropriate work clothes, spend some time getting these in place. You don’t want these things to stand between you and a good job.

Sometimes, we run into other barriers that keep us from finding—or keeping—a good job. The Barriers to Employment worksheet can help you see the potential barriers you might face and explain how to deal with them.
