on Finding Work
In this job market there is no clever trick or method to finding a job. People suggest all sorts of things: Linked In, various web sites, informational interviews, interview tips, cool resumes, etc. etc.
So what happens when you try all of that, and you're still unemployed -- for a year, or two years, or three years? With the number of unemployed people, getting a job is largely a matter of dumb luck.
And by the way, try getting a job when you're in your late 50s, and the people in the interview room are 20 or 30 years younger than you. Age discrimination is the 800 pound gorilla in the room that no one wants to talk about.
