Welcome to the new Mighty Forces

Recently I had a conversation with a good friend, someone with many years of experience in his field. He’s a hard worker, innovative and knows how to solve problems. Despite all that, he’s one of the so-called “99ers,” people who have been out of work for more than 99 weeks.

This site is for him – and for all the people struggling to make their voices heard above the din of thousands of other job-seekers.

The good news is, you can do it. The bad news is, job hunting is a game where most of the people you encounter don’t want you to learn the rules. I’ll do my best to show you how to play the game; the rest is up to you. If you’re new here, you should probably start with “It’s not about you.”

I’m not a professional job counselor, and I don’t play one on TV, either. But I think we can have a conversation that will take you a little further down the road you want to be on. Let’s go.

    This is fantastic Adam. As a former Employment Advisor for a non-profit in Boston (the 100-year-old Women’s Educational and Industrial Union that helped Amelia Earhart find a Social Work position long before her piloting days), I totally agree with what you’re saying. And then to add in your wonderful writing style to your sound advice. It’s a valuable combination. Where can we send our resumes?
