Resources, Tips and Tricks


"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many -
- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some".

- Charles Dickens

   From my own experience I know that there are few things in life more difficult than trying to survive between jobs...    And we all know that the hardest job of all is looking for a job!   Throw in a growing pile of unpaid bills, maybe a family that is depending on you... And you've got an incredibly stressful and volatile mix!

Having been in a similar spot some years ago (I was out of work for 11 long months), I want to help others learn how to successfully weather their own storms of unemployment, and sail on through to smoother seas and bluer skies...


   So How DO you Get-By Between Jobs?    Useful advice is to be found throughout the Wizard of Jobs' Website, but THIS PAGE is specifically designed to help you cope with sudden job loss, reduced or lost income, dealing with creditors, and many other of the harsh realities of Joblessness.

     This Resources, Tips and Tricks "Link-List" could make a BIG difference...    maybe enough of a difference to help you keep a roof over your head or food in your cupboards...
