Today I went into NYC to have an informational interview at a major ad agency. The person I met was introduced to me by my former media director at McCaffrey & McCall. it was a productive meeting and I think it may lead to something in the future. we shall see. being unemployed has been a very frustrating process, but the only reassurance is the fact that iknow i am not alone. in fact, it was recently reported that unemployment benefits have reached the highest level in 20 years.
