12 Job Search Links and an E-Book

Did everybody have an OK Thanksgiving? Obviously, if you're in the same sort of spot that I am, with no job, very little hope at the moment, and the Holidays bearing down on you, I'm not going to make you feel any worse by asking if you had a nice Thanksgiving. When the stuff you're “thankful” for gets down to the basics of “not being homeless and having enough food” it's pretty hard to get all rah-rah about it.

I managed to get another slug of links pulled together for you (and even got a bit of a start on next week's). Some of these are sort of odd (like the Steve Case one), but they (like some of the books I feature) provide another angle to look at the job search … and the more information, the wider perspective, you have, the better armed you are to fight it out in the employment trenches. These follow below.

I also ran across a free e-book that looked pretty good, especially for those just slogging off into looking for a job. This is put out by Career Builder, and is called Jobology. While only 20 pages, it gives a reasonably comprehensive over-view of the whole process. I figured I'd feature it up here, rather than as one of the links.

As always, I hope you find these of use:
