Job Stuff 25

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.

A good post for older workers, or any workers.

It’s more than that. we’ve lost a lot of productivity and wealth creation in the last ten years.

In the end, regardless of what people think, there are limits and once they are reached, it’s not going to be pretty.
