I began my own business assisting the unemployed and some tips.

1. Create a well focused job search based on your skills and abilities.

2. Carefully follow directions on job posts from employers on how to apply for their open positions.

3. Contour your resume/cover letters to fit the job applying for

4. Focus on your skills and how to transfer them into other job opportunities

5. It will take you as long to find a $9.00/hr job as it will a $15/hr job. Match your skills and abilities to job openings that will meet your needs and that of the employer

6. Finding a job is a full time job. Each business day dress for success and work as if you were on a job!

7. While you're looking for work, seek out other venues and methods of making money (home based work, applying to Internet ads, etc.)
