I’ve been a little remiss in posting lately, due to the fact that I’ve been meeting with a few recently unemployed friends over food and drinks this week. I’m not really sure why they chose to spend precious job-seeking time with me, considering my best advice usually goes something like this:
Friend: The economy is just awful and the job market is even worse.
Me: Oh I know. I’ve been reading all about it. Here, have a beer.
Friend: Yeah, and my former employer laid me off right before Christmas too.
Me: Really? Wow, that sucks. Maybe we should move on to shots.
Clearly I know just how to make a person feel better.
Anyone else want a free career counseling session with yours truly?
