I have just been reinstated as a State employee after having been laid off all summer.
As you may know, the states have received stimulus money. They are hiring again!
I highly encourage you to go to your state's job search website (in IL it is www.work.il.gov). You may have to go to a location to take a few tests, depending on what kind of position you are searching.
If other states are like IL (and I'm pretty sure they are), benefits begin day one. There is Veteran's preference if you are one...
Another good idea is to get yourself on Linkedin. It was described to me as a network site for adult professionals.
Great good luck and love to all regarding your goals for fitness, health, family, employment and leisure.
I will still be on SP, and hope to continue the friendships I have made on this team.
Love...gentle hugs...best wishes...
