Summer doldrums

Slogging into August, still unemployed, what a drag.

Everything still has a “school” feel—nothing doing until Sept.

Andy Teach, writing in Forbes, though, says there are few things you must do to keep your hand in.

Maybe get some temp jobs—these are good for poking around, reading bulletin boards and networking—and can even go perm.

Take a class. Maybe get a certificate—project manager, html fundamentals, this, that.

Volunteer. You will feel good and meet people. Break up the routine!

Work on your website, build up your social media.

Go to breakfast meetings, networking groups, whatever is meeting.

At least get those jammies off! Auntie Star sez!
