Arriving at the job fair a little after 10:00 this morning, my estimation is there were approximately 3,000 professional men and women all over the age of 35.
OK, back to the job fair. Much to my disappointment, there were only 14 companies of which 2 did not even show up. Subtract the Navy, Marines and Air Force booths, we were down to 9 companies. Subtract Macy's who only were hiring for Holiday help (note I didn't say Christmas...that really burns me but that is another post). If you were an IT person, you could very much write your own ticket. I am not an IT person. I still have problems coding html thingies.
The bright spot today is I used my networking knowledge and reconnected with the one of the owners of the company I once worked for. My initial goal was to ask him if I could use him as a reference. However, he may have a lead or two for me. Is this The Plan?
So...baby steps...gotta take baby steps...and I promise...no more utterly personal stuff.
