Thank you for all the great info and doing the Get A Job! program. This is a great help as was laid off from my job on 4/2/12. I know I will get the best job for me. Thanks for all your hard work. Love music on your page.
Thanks Brenda! Glad you liked the music. Thanks for the support. Great profile for job seekers. I need info and support for creating a job for someone. So challenging to know how to hire and how to manage.
Brenda...I see you on all the posts I visit. We must be similar or have similar curiosities. Thanks for always being so positive and checking in frequently.
I am finding that T2L is becoming a positive outlet for me to spend time rather than going out to the party scene.
Please continue to be active and have a great week!
Thanks for writing me back (and at length) and for not dismissing me as ticked off weirdo (jury is still out on that, of course). You've given me a lot to think about...and it'll take time, but I will follow some of those pieces of advice. So...boost!
Boost for you for trying to help with the committments tool. Strangely, a couple of times, it's said, "finished" and then somehow gone back to "in progress". Not sure how it did that. Somehow, I must have finished something...and then undone it.
No call backs on your resume for interviews? Interviews not leading to offers?
Concerned that you may not find a job given the current economy? Staying at a job you no longer enjoy?
Worried about all the competition for the jobs that are out there?
Wondering if life is passing you by because you lost your job?
I want to reassure you that you will get another job!
How you approach your search is the key.
There is a solution and a way to get hired in any economy.
Be assured, nothing is wrong with you! You just need the right tools. Here are the steps in Get A Job Tools that will lead to success:

Below are popular job search web sites that I utilize and would recommend:
www.Indeed.com is a favorite of mine. It's a great job search site that delivers open jobs daily in an e-mail to your inbox. Note that it is not the place to upload your resume for others to browse. Simply fill in your search word and search location and Indeed does the rest. You will receive daily e-mails with job listings that match your search criteria! They include searches of other major websites so you don't have to check all the sites daily. This streamlines any job search by providing one stop shopping for you!
www.Simplyhired.com also searches other job sites and business so you don't have to. You can also do plenty of research about companies here, as well as conduct plenty of networking.
