It's a New Year

The new year is around the corner. What are you waiting for? Get out there and have some fun, meet some new people and learn something. The opportunities are bountiful. If you are not finding all those opportunities then maybe you are looking in the wrong places.
Get out there and network. Remember that networking is always more giving than taking. Remember your mother told you it is better to give than receive, she is right.
Next, get yourself into a positive frame of mind. Oh yes, you say how does one do this? Find other people to network with. Attend a support group. Visit a Toastmasters club. Go see a movie, so many ways to do this.
Goal setting for many is paramount, you might want to sit down and lay out some short term goals for the new year, this is a great time for that.
When it seems so hard to do, be sure you are looking for ways to make this fun.

Happy New Years

Useful tips

So many "where do I go from here" questions. As you begin the process of starting your search here are just a few tips/ideas for you. Besides needing a resume you'll find networking to one of your better avenues of success. A web portfolio, blog, presence on the web, Linked In and other web networking tools are of exrteme value. As questions and ideas surface here more will be added to assist those wanting assistance.
A point I like to stress is my mantra "Have fun, Meet people, Learn something". If you aren't ahving fun then it will be an awful experience out there.

Let's get this blog on the road

It is time to get started with a blogspot for the Job Finders Support group. This is intended to allow the world to participate, in a portion of life that most folks detest, don't like, fear, have anxiety over, lose sleep over, and quite frankly shrink away from if at all possible. Please feel free to post your questions, comments or even your answers to others questions. It is you out there that have the answers and have done so well, for over 15 years now, helping your fellow mankind out with.
