As the years crawl by...

As we drone on in Obama's sluggish, dispirited America, I wonder about this blog. Are you getting anything out of it? I get about 800 hits a day--most in Europe or Asia.

I feel like I am looping--the same job hunting advice in different forms...on and on.

Oh, well, maybe I need to regroup--and that is what this post is about, too.

Renowned work guru company Robert Half says it's easy to get discouraged. But don't call it quits, he says.

Unemployment can make you feel aimless--you need to treat job hunting as a REAL JOB. Get dressed, start at a reasonable time, make a schedule.

Put yourself out there--go to lunch with old contacts, join professional societies.

Contact companies you like even if they have no listed openings..

Write up your short and long-term goals. How many resumes do you want to send this week?

Think about part-time or contract work.

At night and on weekends--kick back and relax.

Above all, don't give up. Momentum stopped is hard to restart.
