When you stop to think about it
Someone asked an employment guru what she should do. She and hubs were both out of work for ages, desperate, and her mother-in-law said some companies will let you work for nothing for a month and still collect unemployment.
How nice of them—let the state pay them to take a chance on you. Also, this amounts to duh—getting you to work for free.
Are you into that? Unemployment is probably way less than your new salary.
Still, a lawyer said maybe the companies could get your four weeks approved as a training program. This seemed like an outside possibility to me.
This one does not pass the sniff test—they win and you lose. And what if they don’t hire you?
