Some of you all out there are or were (recently) searching for job. [You know who you are] And so if you are one of those that have recently completed a job search or/are still in the process of job searching, this article is for you. You see -- no one really understands what this is all about, unless they’ve walked a mile in his shoes.
My job search has been with laced ups and downs plus lots of twists and curves. Although I’ve been unemployed a few times in the past, nothing prepared me for the unemployment that I would experience in years 2011, 2012, and a portion of year 2013.
For one, the United States economic recession has been deeper than many of us realized.
Oh sure, there are those that had jobs. You ‘employed’ had to do extra task in the workplace due to delayed hiring. You all had to pick up the slack (i.e. more with less). Yet for those of us that were members of the long-term unemployed, it just seemed like the party was over and that the door would be locked forever.
