I firmly believe that in today's labor market, career management skills are basic life skills that everyone needs. Unfortunately many people don't get an opportunity to really learn those skills. So, I'm thrilled to be editing the Unemployment Site and passing on what I know about surviving and even thriving in the face of unemployment.
If you'd like to learn more about my background, and what qualifies me to write about surviving unemployment, you can view my profile.
Here are the latest articles from the Unemployment Site at BellaOnline.com.
I've started a series on rethinking your career options. The first step in rethinking your options lies in being able to tell the difference between something that's a great opportunity and something that's a big waste of your time and money. You'll find tips on how to make those judgments in my newest article:

You'll find tips on protecting your career and maintaining your earning power while you're out of work in these two articles:
