Hey There..... Hope everyone is doing well.....

While there is much talk about layoffs... the good news... there are companies still hiring.... and This morning  The Power for your Pocketbook... gives some tips on re inventing yourself so you can land a job if you are out of work.

First, know where the jobs are. Believe it or not, there are companies that are hiring right now. T-Mobile for example, is adding about two thousand jobs throughout most of the country -- in retail and customer service. We've been reporting how the census Bureau for the state will be hiring about 1900 temporary jobs here in the Oklahoma city area. and we know even the FBI is taking applications.... expecting to hire more than 3 thousand people....

If you are finding yourself looking for work... you may have to start thinking differently...

These days you may require some retraining. Consider taking classes online or check out your community college or a votech school.. For an online degree, make sure the college is accredited. Work your contacts.... sometimes its who you know... that can help you push open an opportunity door.

And , polish your resume -- for free. Check out career-one-stop dot org. You can view resume templates and samples and you'll find out what buzzwords to include on your resume or what to do about the gaps in your employment history.

Don't expect things to just happen... you have to be motivated and keep pursing all opportunities... and don't get discouraged...even if it means taking a job that can pay the bills now.....while your still pursue your passion job.

Good Luck...

Blessings.
