Subject:advice for the job hunt From:Chris L <userchris0224 -at- yahoo -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Thu, 12 Apr 2001 15:09:04 -0700 (PDT)
Hi all -
I was laid off a few months ago from a contract tech
writing position (in RTP). Since that time, I've
submitted my resume to *every* agency (technical or
not) that I can find, scoured the newspapers, tried to
form personal contacts, and submitted my resume to
monster.com and similar job boards. I've had only
*one* major bite--and that fell through the cracks
thanks to the economy. I think I am running out of
Does anyone see a loophole, a possible avenue of
opportunity I may be overlooking? Is it just my area
or are all regions feeling the sting of unemployment?
Any advice/responses welcome!
PS - Please forgive if this topic has been discussed
before--or recently. I am a new subscriber.
