So I’m back looking for work, and it’s not going very well. I’ve had a couple of interviews, but nothing’s really panning out. I know the same thing is going on with a lot of people who stop by my blog, so I thought I’d bend your ear to this new resource today.
Tweetmyjobs.com is pretty awesome so far! I got to upload and edit a resume. And before you groan, I have to tell you, TweetMyJobs has the best resume populator I’ve EVER seen! They actually got 90% of my information put in the right spot from the start. That’s never happened before.
They also seem to have really great inroads somehow. I just applied for a job with RiteAid that I never would have seen on Craigslist, but they tweeted it right to me through one of their channels I’m following. Of course, it also never occurred to me to apply for RiteAid. I think that’s probably another function they fulfill: expanding your brain. Sometimes when the hunt starts to get harsh, folks get tunnel vision.
Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend you hit up this site. Here’s a look at my new resume as an example: http://www.tweetmyjobs.com/resume/lincolnr
Wow! If anyone is committed to social justice and community organizing, an amazing temporary opportunity has just come up with the Seattle Office of Civil Rights.

Here’s the job announcement:
Here’s a summary of the ordinance so you can get up to speed:
And a FAQ sheet about the new law as well:

A few people are hitting this website looking for information on the apple picking jobs here in Washington state.
Can’t say I blame you. I found a ton of articles, but figuring out how to get the actual work took some digging. It’s almost like they’re saying “We’re DESPERATE for people to work…but only if you can crack the code and find the buried treasure!”
Here’s the link for the apple picking openings if you want to look at it: http://www.wa.gov/esd/farmworkers/farm_jobs.htm
This got me thinking: since the economy is as messed up as it is, I should post other jobs at least once a week. So from here on out, Thursday shall be jobs day here at Your Info Linc.
Let’s get it rolling!
