    that’s very encouraging.
    thanks for sharing.



    -Hey, thank for taking all that time for me.
    That is very kind of you.
    I’m taking notes.
    My resume is a blank slate, I started a family immediately out of university.
    So all I will have when I go job hunting is a degree.
    The irony is that the only time in my life where I came close to having a real job is as an employment counsellor.
    I was trained to help people make resumes, help them with interview techniques cold call to employers..etc etc I trained for several months then go a panic attack the first week I was on the job.
    So I guess that won’t be going on my on resme..LOL Francine



    Get the first degree, then get a job.
    You are cheaper to hire without the masters, over qualified etc.
    Then get the masters.
    Some companies even have programs to pay for or help pay for post-grad work.
    Just a thought.
    Good for you getting your degree, Nancy



    So I’m a 46 year old with loads of energy to do a job.
    Want to tell me why I don’t get called for interviews or better tell me where I can get a job in SF? Tom Original: Reply:



    Getting interviews is not hard if your putting out your resume and application.
    If you put out 10 resumes or applications a week and are not getting at least one call in for a interview then your resume needs some work or your applying for jobs your not qualified for.
    Since your resume should have no indication of your age or sex or how your last job went then the problems can only be that your not getting your resume in the right hands or it is simply not written well.
    Your wrong there is help out there and the fact that your a 46 year old white guy has nothing to do with any of this.
    Go to your local Junior college with your positive energy and find the career center.
    If you don’t like the first person you talk to go back and talk to someone else.
    SF is not exactly having unemployment problems and you only need one yes.
    You just have to handle a few nos to get there.
    If your not sending or delivering at least 10 resumes a week every week then your not treating your job search like your current career your acting like your on vacation.



    All I can speak to is my own experience – I am a 42 YO single mom with 2 young children and a teenager.
    I stayed home with my twins for 5 years.
    Once I started looking for work I had a job within 1 week for an accounting firm 2 miles from my house.
    A positive attitude and a realistic job hunt, along with a well prepared resume should get you in the door somewhere.
    If not, you need to look at what may be wrong – are you qualified for the jobs you’re applying for? Overqualified? Does your resume show you at your best? How are your interviewing skills? Is there someone in your life (who knows you well) that you’ve asked to look at your resume or practice interviewing for? Twice since I started working here, I have run ads and interviewed applicants and I am shocked at the apathy of people towards working.
    So a positive attitude and really selling yourself shoud be successful! Good luck!



    Where do you get your information? SF is a terrible place for unemployment.
    Where are you from? Do you see the homeless and barely poor walking the streets of SF? I’ve had my resume reviewed by several people who would tell me something is wrong with it and they have told me it’s fine.
    I’m glad you can be so high and mighty since you apparantly have a job.



    And if enough people lived a life of love and harmony – we could change the world.
    Be careful what you wish for – anger, bitterness, resentment usually comes back to you.
    I myself prefer to spread peace and love wherevery I go and remain faithful that my God, who created this place, will have the last word.
    See, I’ve read the Book, and I know the ending.
    God wins.
    And everything that happens in between doesn’t have eternal significance.
    Only He does.
    It’s easier for me to let Him be God.
    Janet if I could find some more people like myself
