More links, and an event ...

Sorry about the links coming through late again. The past couple of weeks I've had a coding project that needed to be done by each Saturday night, which has typically ended up in my hands Friday afternoon, so I've been working on that rather getting out a Friday post. Of course, while I have a couple of things “in the hopper” I've not had any books to bring you on Mondays either (I figures this wasn't the right venue for Japanese Religion: Unity and Diversity, etc.), so I figured that getting out something in the Friday-Monday zone would work for us both.

I also realize that you probably don't want to read any Emo “poor me” stuff, so I've been holding back a lot on the “personal experience” stories, as of late they've all been pretty ugly. However, I can not adequately express how SICK  I am of this job search, which has now entered its 29th month. Damn.

Oh, one thing you might want to check out … the PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) is having its 2nd Annual Resume Workshop on October 26th at Loyola University, down by the Water Tower. This does have a cost, but I trust that PRSA (which also has a very solid job board) will make it well worth the $15 it's charging for non-members. If you're looking for some help with that, you might consider attending (I just signed up!).

Anyway, here's last Friday's “link dump”, hope you find some of these useful:
