Got the Laid Off Blues

My company shut down the division I was in, so I’m out there looking for a job. This is the first time I’ve searched for a job and done interviews in 13 years, so it’s an experience. My resume was rusty enough that I had it rewritten by a resume service and I gotta say it’s a big improvement.

We’re doing OK here on the homefront. I’ve got some good leads with some good companies that I hope will pan out. I got a generous severance package and my wife just landed a job. But the sooner I get a job the better, natch.

If you know anyone who’s looking for someone with e-commerce, online marketing, and social media experience give me a shout.

If you feel comfortable endorsing me for any of these skills I’d appreciate it. Here’s my profile/resume.

  • Google AdWords

  • Blogging

  • Photography

    Les, if you’re open to a bit of private contract work, I could use some technical and marketing help. Please e-mail me (my address is in my blog profile) and we’ll talk.

    Sorry to hear that and best of luck on the job search. (I just sent you a request on LinkedIn.)

    Oh no! But with skills like yours, I’m certain you’ll have a quick recovery.

    Thanks, all. I’ve got some good friends.

    Peter, email sent. Talk to you.

    I don’t have a linkedin acct so couldn’t review the resume. I have contacts in banking and banking software (mostly cobol and perl). Is that where you think you may have a passion?

    Woz, I do some programming, but I’m not primarily a programmer.
