BARBARACT - 2/27/2011
There have been a few more nibbles this year. The good news is that I even received two offers recently!! However, the first one didn't want to pay me legally (or its other employees) so I declined the offer. And the 2nd employer rescinded their offer after delaying my start date for almost 3 weeks!!!!!! So I am back to square one.... Best of luck to you & hope you have already gotten a call back since you posted this message!!!

Thanks for the info!

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

Perhaps this is something folks are already scouring but there is the Occupational Outlook handbook put out by the US Dept. of Labor which highlights what the prospects are for job growth sector by sector. Here are some links:

Not here in Colorado. The only good thing is that I was approved for Tier 4 unemployment. Good luck, I hope you get hired.

I noticed within the past 2 weeks that I have seen a lot more jobs available. I hope I get a call back soon. Has anyone else been able to apply to more jobs? Just curious.

As my Father used to say, "You only live once, so do it all!"
