Wife is looking for a job as a paralegal in the Wash. DC area. Been nearly a year now, a few nibbles but no bites. She has a MS in criminal justice, I don’t know what the issue is.

Thanks for sharing. I am at such a dysfunctional company and am looking to bail out as are the two other sensible people there.

I have a decent job yet I have been relegated to the office until things pick up.

I am also attending culinary school and I am looking to pick up a second job when I am finished.

I am located in Ogden, UT

After a long year and some change, my actual job is almost ready to greenlight but now I seem to be encountering the most resistance from certain elements of HQ who apparently want this branch to fail. However I am pegged for field work sometimes and that makes things more tolerable. I am still working on laying plans to go work for myself and building some clients.

I noticed an interesting way to make a few bucks or a possible living for those with energy and a little initiative.

Sign up for an annual membership on the genealogy websites (like ancestry.com) and then offer your services in the local paper...such services being the research of family genealogy.

Many folks are willing to pay for such research but cannot or will not learn the intricacies of such sites and, as such, are unwilling to make long-term commitments to such sites that are often needed.

Use your imagination...and good luck!

There are tons of Non-profits in DC & VA - who may need paralegals...GWSAE (Greater Washington Ass'n of Association Execs) has a job posting, at least they used to.

Network, attend receptions, parties, DC Bar functions, voluntary bar, Court stuff. Even though unemployment is "low" in DC, in a tough economy it's more, not less, of "who you know."

There's the temp-to-permanent route, too.

Just thinking out loud. All the best to your wife andyou.

Thank you for posting this. I’ve spent the past year in job limbo - IOW, my company has been waiting on a system conversion which is supposed to eliminate my job position but this “better” system that was supposed to be ready last June may not be in place until this coming June and, while the company won’t say what their future plans are for me and my work group, some here just assume we’ll be laid off.

So, while I may get lucky and not be job-hunting, I’ve lived with the threat of job loss ever since last winter.

Good luck to all of you who are job-hunting. If you go strictly by unemployment figures, the region of North Dakota-South Dakota-Nebraska is the best for finding a job. Here in Texas, our unemployment rate is still in the 8% range but we are seeing a ton of out-of-state plates down here which are either conservatives fleeing their liberal hellholes or liberals fleeing their current hellholes to create new high-crime, high-tax hellholes down here.

I’ve heard from others that worry about layoffs.

When I was concerned about being laid off, (ages ago — due to the economy): I did watch the job ads even though I was still employed.

It gave me a sense of comfort and directions knowing what I could do if I had to do it.

I was discussing genealogy with a distant cousin (distant but just a few miles away) and she was bragging about how her research had taken her back two generations.

When I told her that I had taken several branches back a thousand years, she was apoplectic.

I tried to explain Ancestry.com to her, but she's not a computer friendly person.

That said, I was lucky to escape with my life (she wanted me to spend the rest of it on hers).

In all seriousness (almost), she was insatiable in her desire for hunting down her ancestors. She was hungry not just for the nobility...she wanted to know about all the scoundrels (and in my family--like all families--there are plenty of those). ;-)

Smiling at you...

It wasn’t until a funeral that I found out my grandfather’s name was really “Poe.”

Enough said.

I understand what you mean about computers.

My dear departed step-mother used to say when I tried to tell he about real events in the news, “Cindy, where do you get these things?”

It wasn’t a compliment, but then, she listened to Brian Williams for the news because “he’s such a nice young man — good looking and soft-spoken.”

“Youth job fair to be held Feb. 13”
Business First of Louisville

SNIPPET: “KentuckianaWorks will host its Youth Opportunity Showcase on Saturday, Feb. 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

The annual event connects Louisville-area employers with job seekers ages 16 to 21. Last year, it drew about 3,000 attendees.

There is no charge to attend or to reserve a booth.

So far, about 40 businesses and public agencies have agreed to participate in the upcoming showcase, and booth space still is available.

Employers will offer a combination of summer employment and year-round, part-time employment, as well as mentoring and internship opportunities for volunteers.”

Ok I just looked through entrepreneur.com and found 2 businesses for my 15 year old daughter and one for my 18 year old daughter - organizing closets and organizing garages, and painting designer storage boxes, respectively. They’re both already excited and I’m starting to research things to get them started. That was FUN!!!

BTW, speaking of scoundrels, I have always had a portrait hanging in my house of a very distant relative (great great grandfather actually)...one Simon Lord Lovat, who, in his day, was considered the greatest scoundrel in Scotland.

In a final ironic twist, one of the wooden grandstands set up for Londoners to watch Lovat’s execution collapsed resulting in several deaths before Lovat himself went to the gallows.

Here's the Wm. Hogarth etching (that hangs in my hall) of the head of the Fraser clan of Scotland...pretender to the crown...

Poe (Edgar Allen) was one of my greatest heroes as a child.;-)

As I said upthread, a huge part of genealogy is learning about the great scoundrels in one's blood (and believe me...there are plenty to go around).

Seems folks are much more interested in the great stories of the bloodlines than just the noble veins (and there isn't a mutually exclusive quality to scoundrels and nobility, is there).

People love stories...and when such stories involve their own family, all the better.

That's why I think there is a great opportunity for Freepers to make a decent living doing a little archaeological digging into the past.

It's kinda like being the National Enquirer of genealogy!
