 Ready, set, go.

I've been in business long enough to know most businesses do not hire in December, even in good years let alone in a struggling economy and a pandemic.

Most hiring managers spend December trying to make their numbers so they can get their kid a G.I. Joe with the Kung Fu grip. (Am I aging myself?)

So I harbored hopes that Monday, Jan. 4 would open up the floodgates of jobs.

That is until I started looking today. Sure, there were plenty of jobs for which I don't qualify: nursing, trucking, high-end mechanic -- and generally anything that calls for sensitivity.

In reality, it's going to take days, weeks, even months before the market opens up a little more. And I'll take anything inside journalism or out because I miss having something to do each day.

It's the turn of the new year and I feel a little better because of that.

Keep reading.

Peace and hope unto all of you my brothers and sisters.
