Response to Snarkoleptic (Reply #65)

Tue Nov 20, 2012, 12:24 AM

81. I used Glassdoor.com, indeed.com, careerbuilder, and monster.

I also got an interview and ultimately job offer from a company that a friend tipped me off on. ASK AROUND about jobs.

I also had several friends e-mailing me with jobs they'd heard about. None of them were good, but I appreciated their kindness and thoughts and wanting to help.

If I hadn't found a job in a certain length of time, I was going to check into temp work. My city is large enough to have a decent contract/temp business, so that I would at least get some money coming in, in my field. If I were lucky, maybe one of those temp jobs would be long and result in a job offer. All that's iffy, but it was something I was going to move on to, rather than stay permanently unemployed. So check into temp work. I think the longer you're unemployed, the worse it looks on your resume.

Having a temp job makes it hard to interview for a permanent job. Not sure how that works, but I thought it might be something I could work around.
