I know many of you Etsy shop owners are also dislocated workers. Meaning..you've been caught in this rotten economic downturn and are having a hard time finding new employment.
You might not know this, but my 'day job' is as a career counselor, resume wizard, computer skills trainer, GED prep instructor which is all wrapped up into the title 'Workforce Specialist'.
So, I'll be sharing some observations, stories and any tips or tricks I come across while working my day job with you, my blogging friends. In case it might be of some help or add some humor to these otherwise, dreary economic times.
As I write this, I have over 20 students in my GED study class right now, ages ranging from 16 - 60, all working diligently on the material they need to cover to pass their GED test and remove that educational barrier in order to find work, or head to college.
Well, I'm off to grade some papers. Wishing all a Happy Thursday!
