Idea she probably didn't know she had
There was a story in the paper today—local section—on a woman who was trying everything to get a job. After 20 years of unemployment, she hit the bricks 7 mos ago.
She has applied to over 400 jobs, even the burger types--$8 an hr (sadly, these are now the writer types, too).
Finally she ditched constant, wistful Craigs-cruising and went to the social sites. While she still found some live ones on Craigs, she sent her resume to all her friends on the social sites.
EXCEPT—she got this newspaper story.
Try for it in your town—make yourself sound neat. You probably are neat. Be sure they include your email.
