I've been receiving quite a few letters from people who are looking for work. Some are short and concise. Others are practically biographies. Others have a resume attached in case I happen to know someone who might be looking for someone. Some letters are hopeful. Some are heartbreakingly sad. A couple people have expressed only their anger and frustration.
By no means are the articles here intended to suggest that it's easy finding work in any of the tech sectors right now. While unemployment rates go up and down, these kinds of statistics don't mean a lot when it comes to the individual. Finding the right job can take several months even in the best economy. I've been there too.Unfortunately there's very little I can do for anyone on an individual basis.
What I can offer you is about 20 years experience in the tech industry, including my experience recruiting, interviewing and hiring just about every tech position you could think of, from entry-level help desk positions to nuclear engineers.
So my question to you is this: How can I help? What kinds of information can I provide you with? Do you need more resume tips? More interview tips? More training and education resources? More links to job websites? What kinds of information are you looking for that isn't doing it for you?
You can let me know by posting a comment here, contacting me on Twitter, or sending me an email to jobsearchtech.guide at about.com. I get hundreds of emails each week so it's unlikely I'll be able to respond personally, but I do read them all.
