Are you planning to travel to New York City to join Occupy Wall Street? We are looking for subjects willing to share their personal stories for a documentary about the protest movement. If interested, please email us at email@example.com . Send us a brief description of who you are, why the protests resonate with you, a rough time frame for when you plan on leaving and how you plan on getting there. Please also leave a phone number. We’ll try to get in touch with as many people as we can for a preliminary phone interview and will select a handful of folks to follow on their journey to New York.
Still no job? Getting dangerously close to the end of your last EDD extension and no plan b? Maybe it’s time to hit the street. Take a lesson from this guy. I think his name is Paco. Maybe not. Whatever his name is he’s awesome.
Just because you ain’t got not job doesn’t mean you can’t make the world a more entertaining place! Get funky with your bad self.
Love, the management.
When unemployment gets you down, read this website. Back at work finally? Submit a post.
It’s official. Gawker likes us. Today Gawker included Michael Spafferty’s video resume as one of its top 5 examples of how NOT to land a job: The video resume. Thanks Gawker. Dreams do come true.
Maybe Michael Spafferty’s dream of landing the coveted Manager’s manager or project management job at Taco Bell will come true too!
And for those who have no idea what i’m talking about, here’s a little blast from Unemploymentality’s past:
Still having trouble getting through to the EDD? Have you called the Vietnamese number yet? We’ve already mentioned this strategy in our ‘mas popular’ post tips and tricks, but if it hasn’t sunk it yet, check out Rudy’s video blog below on how calling the Vietnamese hotline got him his checks. Besides, although he doesn’t actually give us a shout-out in his video, i’m pretty sure he learned about this trick via our site because he lists ‘unemploymentality’ as one of his video tags. Thanks Rudy, right back atcha!
Twitter has teamed up with TweetDeck to offer a custom desktop job search tool. For those of you who can’t imagine finding a job on the social networking service, check this out: 340,000 jobs have allegedly been posted on the site so far. The new feature is supposed to make it easier for those jobs to get to you, without the need to search Twitter yourself. Plus, you can add your LinkedIn and Facebook feed to the mix.
But will it really help job seekers? Or will it just bombard you with jobs you’d never apply to in the first place? Are you really using sites like Twitter and Facebook to find jobs? Talk to me.
Submitted by a colleague, Mr. David Pond. A worthy project. Show him some love:
As many of you know, the current economic environment is one of the worst we have experienced in decades. Many people have lost their jobs, their homes, and their dreams. Families have been broken apart and lives changed. Regardless of specifics, the “American Dream” has changed. It no longer means what it once did, especially to the youth generation (also called Gen-Y and the Millennials). This is due to the economic situation, as well as the connectivity we now have. What does the American Dream mean today? I want to find out.
“One American Dream?” is a documentary exploring the American Dreams of the youth generation. As a feature length documentary, “One American Dream?” will follow my journey as I travel around the country in search of how the vision of success has changed and what the American Dreams of today’s youth are. Following in the footsteps of previous generations I will travel on the train and bus talking to people the mainstream media often over look. This will give a voice to many different people who all have a story and a dream to tell.
I encourage all of you to visit the site, oneamericandream.com, comment, read and participate. I want to know your story and what your American Dream is.
