    Employment agencies can be an effective way to get good interviews. I used one to get my second job in Los Angeles. They expertly rewrote my resume so it had the desired impact.
    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
    ...
    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

    From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia

      I'm going stir crazy with no job...it's great, but it's stressful.

      I think I am going to try an agency this week actually. Maybe that's the better approach since I'm trying to re-enter a field I haven't worked in for 10+ yrs.

        that sounds like a good idea especially since some companies go through agencies to fill jobs for them
        (not just temp jobs but regular permanent)

          I have kept my computer skills up-to-date. I use my home computer daily, so won't become rusty if I ever search for another job. I am considering doing some sort of business class in September. I'd be very interested in business studies and just building my knowledge. I don't need to be shown how to use a computer, so there is zero point is attending a computer class. I also don't need help with my math or English. And I have all the office skills I need. It'll be business, if I do a course. I do think it is important to keep your options open and update skills. I love working at the charity, though, and will carry on doing so.
