People Helping People

Well, as I promised last Friday, I’m going to try to pull together a blog post of people helping people in this time of recession, especially people helping people without jobs. I’ve been searching through Google News, and these are the stories that I’ve come up with. Let me know via twitter if you have any other stories that you think I should be covering next week! New Jersey Jewish Standard: Shul Networks Target Job-Seekers, Businesses A resident of Wayne, NJ has created the Wayne Career Networking Group to help local folks find a job. InformationWeek: Pink Slip protection Offered by Virgin Mobile Virgin Mobile has implemented a “pink slip” plan to help people who have lost their jobs keep a pre-paid phone for up to three months. KSBY Action News: ‘Job Re-Joov’ helping job seekers through recession One woman is holding an employment skills training workshop for free in Santa Maria. Author Provides Free Job Search Book to Job Seekers There are obviously a number of examples out there in the past week. I want to hear your stories. Is there anyone out there who knows someone who is donating their time or energy to helping other people find a job? Leave me a comment, or let us know on twitter.
