JOBS: Need a job? Know of job openings or do you have any to offer?
In keeping with my personal mantra lately of ASK OUT LOUD, I'm posting more about Wishadoo! since I know it can be helpful and it's not being used (mainly because I don't have the time/resources to promote it properly). This is not the time to be meek and quiet; hopefully I won't be viewed as spamming.
We need to make use of the tools we have available, create others that are within our power to do, and work together more and more and more.
The Wishlist has many categories, including a JOBS category. One for JOB NEEDED and one for JOB OPENINGS. It's not being used yet, but this is another way this community could come together to help one another in a more organized way.
When I see DUers post about needing a job, I'm going to reply with a link to this OP.
You do need to sign up at Wishadoo! in order to post anything or send messages, but you don't have to join or log in to view things (unless they are intentionally set as private).
If you belong to other networks or communities that would resonate with the whole premise of Wishadoo!, and our general worldview here at DU, please invite them to check out Wishadoo!
I need ambassadors. The more who gather....
Here's a link to the general Wishlist (a "craigslist of compassion") section:
Here's a link to the JOB NEEDED category:
Here's a link to the JOB OPENINGS category:
Omaha Steve kindly sent a link to www.unionjobs.com, and I'll create a banner ad or something to make that visible in the JOB OPENINGS category tomorrow.
To learn more about Wishadoo! and/or to help spread the word, this link takes you to a page with a link to a printable flyer about Wishadoo!, and another link to an infographic that gives you the "bigger picture" of Wishadoo!
Let's start using these tools!!!
EDIT TO ADD: As always, if you sign up at Wishadoo!, please let me know your DU name so I can share here when I create Wishadoo/DUer OPs. And, be sure to look in your spam folder for the verification email if you don't see it after registering; I can always do it for you manually, just let me know.

OGR, you rock as always...love the fact that you bring us alternatives. I saw an earlier post that someone lost their job today... hope they see this!
Freelancing gigs are few and far between fo me right now...I should definitely make sure I get myself posted

2. I just read a DUer's post saying he was fired, which prompted me to finally post this...
and I did share this OP in his/her post.
Hopefully I won't get on anyone's nerves (and they can use discernment if they dislike my posts), but enough's enough.
I've spent years developing this and there's no reason on earth not to use them. Those of us of like mind can come together more efficiently and effectively -- beyond how we already do here at DU -- and Wishadoo! offers one way of doing so via the tools there.
And, as you well know, I have so much more I want to put into action waiting in the wings...
