Are you looking for a job? (#4) [Look here first!]
I know professional resumes are very important in some careers, so I advise you all to check out the first site below. Search Google for tips on finding jobs in your profession. Tell everyone you know that you are searching for work. The more eyes looking for you, the better. If you have questions, remember that someone on FR.com DOES KNOW THE ANSWER. So don't be embarrased to ask for assistance!

I recommend that you read through the previous “Are you looking for a job?” threads for tips and ideas. I have gathered all the resources from them to this thread.
Are you looking for a job? (Thread #1)
Are you looking for a job? (#2) Expanded list! (Thread #2)
Are you looking for a job? (#3) [A Nice List] (Thread #3)
Are you looking for a job? (#4) [A Better List] (Thread #4)
The more precisely you planned your future, the harder that your temporary unemployment will hit you. Flexibility must be the order of the day to maintain a healthy attitude.

Very nice thing to do.
When you interview for any job, always dress exactly as you would if you were showing up for work in that position.
Never over or under dress for the interview.
It sounds like a simple thing but history proves that managers hire people that “Fit” the position.
Your first impression is important, that starts when you walk in the door!
Most often people way over dress, those are seldom hired.
Some other job search sites of interest.
Which, alas, is NOT likely to be doing much hiring over at least the next four years.
But at least we’ll all have Pie. . . .
Won’t you be busy arming the Obama National Civil Defense Groups, or will they be using Russian and Chicom weapons, do you think?
“Pie is for comrades.”
BTTT for...later today
B4, you can come out of your room now. I haven't called anyone a loon or a goober for at least a week.
Mark this. If you don't need it, someone you know will.
A lot of work and thought went into this thread.
I don't need it (yet).
But I will bookmark it.
Granddaughter’s looking for a job - thanks for the list.
I'm going to add a thought or two that you may not see elsewhere. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to pitch in.
As an employer I have hired when unemployment was 2% and I have hired when it was 10%. The circumstances affect what I am looking for. It is harder to hire when I have two or three hundred applications for one job sitting on my desk. Other companies tend to take advantage of a bad situation and dump their deadwood first, seemingly with good resumes but who disrupt more than they contribute to an organization. My defenses go to high, too high, and I miss some good bets. Watch your references. Line them up in advance and have them ready.
When times are tough they are tough on me, too. I can't afford the slop, the extra employee or two who you have to keep on to fill in for people who like to call off four or five times a month. I don't care how good you are, if you can't show up I don't want you. I would rather have a solid and dependable 6 than a 10 who is a prima donna.
I don't want to hear how badly you need a job. The other three hundred need a job, too. I want to hear what you can do for me. I want the guy who goes the extra mile. I'm an employer, not your Daddy.
Add your problems or thoughts and keep this bumped for your friends and neighbors.
Good luck and may God Bless.
Another BTTT...thanks, glock! Thanks, MM!!
I will keep this filed but I am currently over employed and over paid.
When my daughter was looking for a job recently the first thing she did was go see her references and had them lined up to vouch for her. She got the second job she applied for over 300 applications with HSU...
Here is your thread.
Conservatives without jobs also need coaching on how to bleed the socialists dry by working all social welfare options. The left has quite an extensive information sharing network on how to milk the system. Conservatives do not. Unemployed conservatives gaming the system now might be considered the patriotic thing to do as it not only denies tax funding to the socialists, but goes negative and consumes what they have confiscated. Conservatives just shouldn’t start to think of voting Democrat next year to keep the goodies coming.
ping for later
Cindy has another, more updated list of employers.
ping for research, thx
BOOKMARKED, and thanks.
