Friendly assist in helping unemployeds

Need tips to gain an advantage in the interview and your resume? Below are some tips to help out.

A good friend of mine, Suzanne Hull owns and operates her business, Contemporary Business Solutions, which assist organizations in create efficiencies by offering a variety of services on a virtual, as-needed basis.  She also has a blog called “Unemployed in Des Moines” that has become a popular site and meeting place for unemployed workers in the Des Moines area to go to for support and to refine their skills and job searches.

Suzanne Hull runs Contemporary Business Solutions and "Unemployed in Des Moines."

If you are a fan of hers, you may have noticed that “Unemployed” has been down for the past few days.  Apparently, her host site, for some unexplained reason, has knocked her website out for a loop.

As she works on getting that fixed, I’m going to give her a friendly assist today and post some interesting points and insights about how to get a “leg-up” on the career/job search.
