+1, pretty good networking site, with access to a lot of professional/job-related forums & other tools. Could be especially helpful in connecting with colleagues or other contacts in a job search

Word of advice-use facebook and linkedin as a tool for finding contact names in hiring roles. It's a good way to at least get someone to speak to in order to get your resume to the hiring manager rather than just trusting the HR submission route.

Picked up a consulting gig today. It's not a continuous thing, but it will come around occaisionally and will be a nice addition to the resume.

Good to hear Sean. Hope everyone's prospects turn out for them.


Edit: You might want to lay off that bodybuilding for awhile. I think you've reached your goal!!

I know this thread kind of petered out, but I wanted to update.

Finally landed a job!

I went outside my comfort zone and skills and got into a warehouse job. Not anywhere near what I have done in the past, but, it looks the same on the resume and it closes the gap.

Perserverance pays off.

This link isn't to help you find a job, but a good way to spend spare time. When you're unemployed, there seems to be plenty of that. I *hated* sitting at home just waiting. Some of these things can lead to networking opportunities as well, and provide resume eye candy too. Not to mention, you're able to help some people out.

p.s. congrats on the job!
