Today is just a commentary on another blog article.

This article from US News references those individuals who might not be on the cutting edge of social media and using it to their advantage for job search.  It relates that those of us who are computer savvy may be spending too much time on the keys and not enough time face-to-face.

It is a reminder that we must balance our lives in everything.  Too much of any one thing cannot be good, while not using all of the tools at your disposal cannot be good either.

One more thing not mentioned in the article is the fact that there are many resources available, and many are free.   Find out what is available by reading and participating.  Many of you may not be aware that each state has free training and development services available to job seekers, especially those who have been dislocated (laid-off) from a previous employer.  Illinois has a great tool at and if you need to learn how to use this great tool, KCDEE offers a monthly workshop in Elgin and N. Aurora that is hands-on, for FREE.

What other resources have  you found that are useful to job seekers?
