As unemployment numbers keep climbing without an end in sight, many people are wondering if their jobs are safe or if they are next in the line in case of a layoff. People often ask me if they should be looking for a job even if they are fully employed. Is the best way to cope with the downturn is by lining up new jobs – just in case? No one knows what the future holds, and every individual situation is very different. Continue reading

As most people know, college graduations are less than two months away at this point. A new class of graduates is soon going to be entering the job market, trying to find a way to land a job and put their skills to use. They sure picked a difficult time to graduate from college, right in the midst of the worst recession in decades. Fox Business News wrote up a good article about this next class of job seekers. The overall message? Don’t give up, don’t get discouraged, don’t be too picky. Read all about it yourself.
Well, another Monday has come by, and it’s time to start up that job search again (if you were even able to stop over the weekend at all). It can be disheartening to go through looking for a job week after week, month after month, and sometimes we need something to keep our heads up. I’m going to try to help you out with that. Every Monday, I’m going to post a funny video about job hunting (no promises that it will be useful) for your enjoyment. First up: An animation called “Give Me a Job,” by YouTube user aniBoom. Good luck! Jean www.americasjobexchange.com

AJB, as it was commonly referred to, was the first national job site built to help job seekers, especially those unemployed or disadvantaged, to find job search information free of cost. Employers could also post job openings free at AJB, which was sponsored by the US Department of Labor and built by NaviSite. No wonder, AJB became one of the largest online job sites, helping millions of job seekers through the’01-’02 recession and high unemployment rates of the ‘03-‘04. Continue reading
