No, I know what you’re thinking. I won’t be using it for this purpose:
I’ve considered it, though, when money is tight, but the whole newsprint thing stops me.
This week I’ve gotten into the panic mode thing that causes me to feel like this:
And when I’m in that mood, I need to do something productive very quick. So, I grabbed the first thing in site.
Yes, the phone book.
People, we under estimate the phone book. It serves great many purposes besides being a door stop or bird cage liner.
I started with the letter “A,” flipped to “C” for “Computer – Software,” and then to “E” for “Education.” I plan on going back to the letter “B” this weekend. What I do is Google each company listed and find out if they have a website. If they have website, I look for a “jobs”, or “careers” tab and I find out if they have any openings. The next stage in this process is sending them an email with an employment inquiry. I may actually call these places if I get really desperate.
So, you see? There we have it. I am being very resourceful, aren’t I?
The fascinating lives of the broke and unemployed continues next week…tune in!
