‘Keep America Working’ Coming to Pittsburgh 12/15

Monster.com is sponsoring Keep America Working for job seekers at different cities around the country.  Billed as the ‘ultimate career fair, the event is scheduled to arrive in Pittsburgh on 12/15 at a location TBD. Thanks to my colleagues at STC Workquest for pointing me to this.

The goal of this space is to offer practical advice along with observations (and sometimes questions) regarding the received wisdom on labor and identity. Okay, as a practical matter most people have to work for a living. Many of us are having a harder time finding it. Personally, I think on-line job searches are overhyped. At the same time they work for some people and can be an effective tool as part of an overall career-search strategy. Please feel free to contact me with your experiences in throwing bread (AKA your resume) upon the virtual waters of the web. Thanks and good luck!
