Stumbling Into Entrepreneurship

Wow … is it late night on Wednesday already … almost let this slip by! I need to get that “set Gordon up to post his own stuff” project moved up the time triage list. Anyway, it is Wednesday (I just got done coding an “image map” for a client’s site that had close to... Read more »

For the older job seeker ...

Hey, Job Stalker readers … I’m hoping that my schedule will start to normalize this week … as you may recall, I was out of town for the better part of a week at a client’s location to run his volunteer team through a “boot camp” in PR and Social Media for a video project... Read more »

If not more chaos, at least more links ...

Hey, I’m back from the East Coast, and, as grueling as the past six days were (once they had me out there, I was pretty much working solid 14 hour days, coding, training, meeting, taking pictures, etc.), it was strangely “relaxing” in a “change of scenery/schedule” way.

I suppose I should have saved that title for one of Gordon’s posts, but it seemed appropriate, after all, here was a Friday post showing up on Monday. I actually had the links ready to roll well in time to have gotten this out on Friday, but I had a couple of “need to be... Read more »

Thinking it over …

Well, co-Job Stalker Gordon Dymowski certainly hit on a theme close to my heart this week, the issue of being an “older” job seeker. There have been times when I’ve been pretty sure that I didn’t get hired in situations where I was bringing to the table exactly what the company was looking for, only... Read more »

Labor Day sucks when you don't have a job!

I think I mentioned that I didn’t have a book “in the hopper” for Monday, and, while I had links ready to go on Friday, I just wasn’t able to “pull the trigger” on a post then, so I guess you’re getting a mid-weekend post of the job search links. Hey, it’s a long weekend,... Read more »
