Our nation’s current job growth is zero.

The zero job growth last happened during World War II. If that was not bad enough, the United States posted a 9.1 percent unemployment rate for August 2011. The unemployment rates are always for the the last month completed, not the current month. (Read more. . .)

Unemployed on Labor Day 2011?
If your are unemployed today, did you celebrate your job search labors? You should! To be laid off from your job is not a reflection of your work, but the ability of an employer to keep you on the payroll. It’s just about business, nothing more, and times are tough. Hint: Repeat the last sentence if you think a lay off is about something else.

Next steps?
If you have not already applied for unemployment benefits, retraining and more, it’s time to take action. (Read more. . .)

Positive Attitude Required
Keep a positive attitude and make a plan to find your next job or career. Time to move on about being laid off as you are likely to get a better job than you were laid off from. Oh, that’s my motto!

I will get a better job than I was laid off from! Jannet Walsh, Murdock, Minnesota

What’s Jannet doing?
She is not letting dust settle on her in Central Minnesota after a recent layoff, but does have a plan. Between applying for jobs, she is learning HTML, CSS and more. Oh, and why do you ask? She wants to be a web designer, but is willing to learn what is needed for the her next job. Books and online learning are just part of her steps to employment.
