    Really scary times for sure! I think the more advice we can have for jobseekers, the better.

    I encourage jobseekers to subscribe to my career blogs and newsletter – completely free!

    I have friends and neighbors looking for work. I have co-workers and even customers asking if I know where they can work part time so that they can make ends meet.

    I know of one person having a Ph.D. working as a receptionist, another with four MBAs and unable to find work for over two years. That doesn’t include may of my former MBA classmates who are looking to advance (or jobs) but everything is frozen!

    If the prediction of the economy slowing even more I may be under the threat of facing layoffs.

    Just yesterday there was a job fair in town. Over 8,000 people attended – there were sooo many that they were turning people away … all for just a few jobs. How sad.
