People like to do business with people they like …

My goal was to create a website as a resource for people who are up against it in this sour economy -who are looking for work.

The advice I give on this site is drawn from personal experience or from the experience of someone I know personally.

Sometimes a little of my opinion seems to find its way into the discussion.

My intention from the outset was to help someone who hasn’t been around the block as many times as I have. I think the material found here will do that.

However, there is no substitute for educating yourself -in terms of formal education, but even more importantly in terms of interviewing skills, and people skills.  I said so more than once here in these pages.  One of those places is in the Interviewing tip ‘caveat’ found on this page: Job Interview Answers Review

Want to know where to acquire ‘people skills?’  One of the most informative books I ever read is “How to win Friends and Influence People” -by Dale Carnegie. If you master the ideas and ideals in that book, you will leap-frog over everyone else. Read it. You’ll see what I mean.

If I wrote anything dumb in these discussions, I take no responsibility for any mis-steps you might take as a result. The reader must digest what I have said and apply his or her own perspective, values, etc. -to it.  Decide for yourself if the information is right for you.
