Laid off? No job in sight? Joshua Piven to the rescue

Saturday, October 31, 2009, 7:30 AM | 1 Comment

Times are extremely tough. Every month, folks are laid off in the hundreds of thousands. Losing job is extremely difficult, especially when it’s increasingly getting harder and harder to get another job. I just finished a book by Joshua Piven. The name of the book is “The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook (Paperback)“. Joshua Piven has some encouraging words about you if you are in this kind of situation.

Sometimes his answers are not very pretty. He says “You lose your job, you run out of savings or a safety net, have to sell home, it’s a down market and you can’t sell your house, you move, pull the kids out of school, it’s not easy to get another job and your whole lifestyle has to change. Then there’s homelessness, maybe spiraling alcoholism, and then living on the side of the train tracks.”

He gives a very gloomy picture of a jobless person at first but then he gives some solutions to get out of that misery. It’s good read and some ideas he presents will be beneficial and hopefully fruitful to you.

In a Nutshell
If you are unemployed and it’s getting harder to get a job, don’t despair. Read the book and hopefully you will get something out of it.

What do you think?

    I must show some appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular difficulty. Right after browsing throughout the online world and coming across tricks which are not beneficial, I assumed my entire life was done. Living devoid of the answers to the problems you have sorted out as a result of your good review is a serious case, as well as ones which might have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t come across your blog post. Your main capability and kindness in dealing with everything was very useful. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not encountered such a stuff like this. I can now look forward to my future. Thank you very much for your expert and results-oriented guide. I won’t be reluctant to suggest your web site to anybody who would need support on this matter.
