more work, less blogging

Since my former employer decided a few weeks ago that they could no longer afford to pay my salary I have had a chance to blog almost daily while sitting in front of my home PC and sending out resumes. That is about to change because tomorrow I start a new opportunity as a consultant for a new employer. No idea yet what the hours will be, but from the interview I gathered that there is much they need done and to expect a long day. Given the economic condition I'm happy to have a job, whatever the hours and demands. Reworking my daily schedule will take some getting used to, so content and posting may be light. Kol ha'haschalos kashos, but I consider myself fortunate to be re-employed.

There are a lot of people out of work these days and I can tell you from firsthand experience that job hunting is tough and the market (at least in NY) is very competitive. There are many, many applicants for every open position, and employers are being flooded with resumes. Because of the oversupply of good workers and scarcity of jobs, salaries have plummeted. If you know of a job opening, chances are there is someone in your community whose resume you can submit. Trust me, that person will be very grateful.

    That's amazing I am noticing a clear trend. You Should spread the word more learning means a job. The guys who I know who went to learn extra with their extra time when they lost their Jobs got jobs, the ones who stressed out and "CANT LEARN" are still searching.The only way I can explain it is from a story that is told In one of the Chofetz Chaim's Seforim about a store keeper who came and complained he had no costumers the Chofetz Chaim told him open a Sefer and learn and you will see the costumers will come in.The Yetzer Hara will provide the costumers for Bittul Torah purposes.The same thing must be true here. Rav Belsky this Friday said over a Baal Shem Tov(which is not his Standard fare) To which a Video is available on Kol Halashon Website Video or audio That before Moshiach the Jews will be Rich and they will loose there money and have only what they need.Scary thought but The message was Pretty clear.

    When the recession began, I thought it was a manipulative ploy by individuals who wanted to buy securities at bargain prices. After all, nothing had happened, and the fundamentals were still sound. I still don't know what went wrong that would explain the degree of reaction. In any case, it's great that you were agile and strong enough to jump from one to another. Hatzlacha rabba.
