I also want to make this blog more of a resource for the unemployed, and not just focus on my personal search for work. I want my job hunt to somehow help others by offering inspiration and methods for finding employment, and to also offer some humor into being unemployed.
To help do that, from time to time I may ask for your opinion on things, or suggestions you have. Many readers have been helpful with comments, and I appreciate them all. What are your resolutions, if any, for 2009 that have to do with either your job hunt if unemployed, or preparing for a future job hunt if you're now employed?
Someone recently commented on a WalletPop post that I should remember that when I do find a job, not to forget to continue all of the work that I put into finding it. Many people, myself included, started networking only after losing a job, and stop when they find a new one. With people losing jobs all of the time, not just once in a lifetime, that's a mistake I don't want to make again. I have a networking team that I helped organize through CPC Job Connections, and I'd like to strengthen it by having the group do more to help each other find jobs.
I've gotten off track. Anyway, please send me your resolutions for the new year. I'll write up the best of them in a post next week, and hopefully give all of us inspiration for change.
