Default Unemployed Banter

I thought this might be a good place for those of us who are unemployed to post up links to job services, websites etc and post encouragement and helpful hints for our brothers/sisters who are in this boat.

I put it in the networking section so if you want to post up a little bit about what you are looking for, maybe it can be useful.

I'll post up some of the more common job search sites and a few I just started using. If you have had success with one or another, post that up.

Sure.....indeed is basically a search engine of job postings. From my understanding, it searches many different resources and can search based on keywords and geographical area. The links provided will take you to where indeed found the job listing.

One positive of being unemployed is I have smoked an awful lot of cigars!

Course I have no money to buy replacements.
