eResumes4Vips Free e-Zine, Issue #001 -- teaser here
January 28, 2010
Dear Friends,

I'm Sooo excited to send out my very first e-Zine. My goal is to bring you all personal insights into my experience with resumes, career, life, and many other items of interest. First, let's talk about jobs and the economy.

Sure, this is perhaps the toughest time to be job-hunting. Employers are skiddish about hiring. 1 worker has to do the work of 3. And you've been searching for a new career...weeks, months...I get it. You're feelin the BITE!

Tonight, the President emphasized JOBS, JOBS, JOBS. Great; now what?

I feel your pain. Yes, I have a job. But I want a change. Personally, it's been a 6 month search. I've learned a great deal. Mainly...

1) Nobody's hiring 2) It takes More than a fantastic resume to get an interview. 3) I am my worst enemy

Let's explore Point #3...shall we.

It's so easy to simply give up. Afterall, Nobody's hiring...Right? WRONG!

Jobs are plenteous; yet, they've moved underground. Companies are hiring. But simply, they've begun to rely upon present employee referrals. Moreover, if Somebody doesn't know ya...Faggedaboutit.

My advice is to become connected. If you haven't already done so, then signup for LinkedIn dotcom. Tweet? Start Twittering. Also, join some civic organization. I joined Toastmasters and am truly Lovinit!

Point is, we are social animals. Recall the song, Ev'rybody love somebody...sometime. Folks, meet people. While you're at it, remember the Golden Rule. It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Best wishes, ~Andre (aka eResumes4Vips)
