Hi Robert:

So sorry to hear about your job loss. Here is a site that has helped me to
"close the deal" on getting the job that I wanted, for the last 10 years,
even in a very bad economy: asktheheadhunter.com. Sign up for the
newsletter, and if you can, either buy or borrow the book: "Ask the
Headhunter - reinventing the interview to win the job," by Nick A
Corcodilos. ISBN 0-452-27801-5.

I have also researched companies and jobs, as well as met new people, on
LinkedIn.com.

Best of luck to you!
PT
