Four months to the day my job ended and I'm still looking hard.
I've had a couple of job interviews that ended with the newspapers hiring other candidates and there are a couple of new openings in newspapers and teaching journalism I'll pursue this week.
Also this week, I'll concentrate on looking at service jobs which are the few that seem to be hiring. That would keep me in Bloomington and goodness knows I love me some food.
Trying to serve as a mentor to unemployed friends, I've reminded them that they they are looking for jobs in about the worst time since the Great Depression. A bad economy and a pandemic lead to a buyer's market. And the number of available jobs has decreased online, I read in a recent news report.
No one should beat themselves up about their employability particularly in this strange time. (Yet of course I do that. It's only natural.)
I still consider myself the luckiest man on the face of Earth -- who is receiving unemployment.
Peace and employment unto all of you my brothers and sisters.
