I have been getting supremely frustrated with my job search. I do not think i have ever experienced anything quite like this. at least I know I am not alone since the unemployment rate is the highest its been in years. It is also reassuring that it was economic reasons that put me in this situation rather than performance issues. I know, or have heard of, many extremely talented people with backgrounds far more impressive than mine who have been out of work. A friend told me that the recession in the early 1990’s cut the fat from corporations, while this recession (we are still in a recession, even though the economists say otherwise) has been more widespread and I think he is right. I will continue to plug along and I am confident that something will happen and I will catch a break sometime soon! click here to go to my resume.
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.
