As I go to unemployed network meetings, people give others helpful ideas. For example, someone mentions they are Technical Writers. Somebody else sez ‘Oh, are you dialed into the Tech Writer association?” Or it’s fairly complex, and you want to tell them about it later. Whatever. Feel free to add it as a comment here. President Obama is doing what he can. I wish he could do more.
As (my recently unemployed) HR recruiter friend told me the other day “Getting thru HR to an interview is a game…ya gotta learn to game the system….Extraordinary times call for Extraordinary measures….” This is a good place to yell the Union slogan – “Workers Unite!” Somehow, we gotta find ways to help each other.
