Job Stuff 14

This is more or less a newsletter for job seekers like myself.  I try to find good job search strategies, bad job search strategies, pure BS and job related articles every week.  So far I’ve never run short.  Please pass this around. I’m not doing this for any reason other than the desire to help and communicate with other job seekers.  If you have any good links or stories, especially stories please comment.  If you want the story private, just put that in the comment and I will trash it and  not let it post.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

The fact is that there is so much advice about what to do and what NOT to do regarding resumes that the whole thing is just a pile contradictory stuff that’s been rendered meaningless.  My advice is is just be yourself and go with what makes you comfortable. A resume is your brand, not somebody else’s.  Also, learn to change things from time to time and don’t be afraid to try something if it looks good to you.

Apparently Richard Branson doesn’t care how old you are.

Considering some of the great engineers I’ve known in the past, who were working well into their 70’s, that’s actually a safe bet.  All that experience is worth putting to use.

More ageism. The problem is that employers are going to have to realize that the pool of qualified younger candidates is going to shrink, strictly from demographics.

What it’s like to lose your job.

Been There, Done That.

The company had a PLAN.

I’m betting that Cengage won’t exist in five years.

Jobs you might want to think about watching your back in if you have.

Frankly every job is on the target list.

When discussing salary, he who puts a number the table, loses.  You don’t have to tell them and shouldn’t.

What’s important is what the employer is willing to pay, not what you were paid last.

How to get a job at NASA.

You never know.
