How to talk to a friend who’s been laid off | Penelope Trunk’s Brazen Careerist

This is a GREAT article. It not only applies to the recently unemployed, but the recent college graduate. Not only have we the staggering unemployment rate to deal with, we are in constant battle with those that are already established career-minded individuals who’ve been recently given the axe. Who’s going to look more promising to the job recruiter? The fresh-out-of-college newbie or the worked-the-same-job-for-twenty-years seasoned pro? I’ll give you a hint: it probably isn’t the second one.

Complaining about how much things are crappy now aside, the comments on this post are spot-on. Everyone I know who recently graduated hates these questions (about the job hunt) as much as the recently unemployed and it’s just as discouraging to us when we’re asked if we “looked online at all?”

So I’ll add my comment, too: Thanks Penelope. It’s so true it hurts.
