3. Stay active as you can, start hunting a job now! When one door is closed, another door around the corner is about to open. So don’t close your eyes to any opportunities. You should consider taking a career shift, a full time or part time job that maybe outside your expertise even if the rate of salary is lower than your former level. It’s highly recommended to involve your family and close friends in any discussion regarding your condition. Tell them what you are going to do and ask for some ideas.

There are a lot of people that have started to feel discouraged about their job search in the recent economic crisis. When there are many applicants and not very many job openings the competition to get a job can be very stiff.

If you find that you have been applying to many jobs and not getting any call backs or interview you may want to change your strategy. At first, changing your strategy can be scary and even a little bit intimidating.

When you start to change the way you think about the job market and the jobs you are applying to you may have a better chance at ascertaining a job. There are a lot of people that do not understand how to make this transition.

First, you should start to extend the scope of your applications. Apply for jobs that you maybe would not have thought to apply to before, but still making sure that you have the needed qualifications to get that job.

A great example of this is in the medical field. There are so many diverse positions that you can apply for when you have been licensed as a doctor or even when you have all of your licenses to be a registered nurse.

More than likely, if you are a registered nurse you have a specialty in the hospital. When you are applying to new jobs you may want to take the time to apply for jobs that are outside of your specialty.

When you are taking the time to understand what a company is looking for you have to make sure that you know what you are capable of. Sometimes you may have some restrictions that limit your options.

There are a lot of people that do not take the time to apply for some positions that may end up being beneficial in the long run. If you can broaden your cope you might as well take the time to apply to those positions.

As you are taking the time to apply for new position you may also want to apply to new agencies. Applying to new agencies is a great way to get your name out into the job applicant sphere.

Applying to an agency that sends nurses all over the world may be an option that you never considered beforehand. Taking the time to think about this option may end up proving very beneficial in the long run.

When you apply to one of these agencies you have to make sure that you are free to go out into the world and travel. There are many different places that you can travel to and work in when you are accepted to one of these jobs.

With these types of jobs you may have the option of applying to a specific area in the world. This may provide you with a new and exciting job that could change the way you view your job for the rest of your life.

If you are able to work in a third world country you will understand the differences in the medical problems that people are facing. You may become more appreciative of the country and the atmosphere you live in.

Some individuals apply to these programs and end up not enjoying their job. When you are thinking about applying you want to make sure that you know what you are getting yourself into and you are being honest about your personality.

When you work with one of these agencies you will probably not be settling down for a permanent job anytime soon. There are so many different jobs that they will send you to throughout your contract that you may never be able to feel that you are at home.

If you know that you are looking for something a little more permanent and you want to start settling down this type of job may not be the best for you. Whether or not you apply to one of these jobs it may be worth exploring.

As you apply or these jobs you should make sure that you are checking with multiple employers. Depending on the agency you sign up with you may be able to have your housing and some of your basic commodities paid for.

Liberate yourself from the grasp of unemployment by broadening the scope of your applications. The more variety in the companies you are applying for and the sheer number of applications you are filling out will increase the chances of finding a job.

Unemployment is the highest it’s been in three decades. The housing mortgage fiasco has contributed to the dramatic growth of homelessness. Tent cities across the United States are growing and are populated not only by the chronically homeless but also with educated and middle class citizens who have lost their jobs and/or lost their homes.

The number of homeless veterans is growing, too, with 200,000 currently “on the streets.” As the incidence of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is growing in recognition, treatment is not keeping up with the need. When these walking wounded return home from Iraq and Afghanistan, the stigma associated with PTSD as well as the lack of compassionate and therapeutic care abandons them to find their own way down a hopeless street. Many commit suicide. Others join the chronically homeless.

Reminiscent of the Great Depression and the era following the Vietnam War, the stories of America’s middle and working class and its returning veterans are resurfacing as exercises in frustration and defeat although the heart of America still beats with hope.

Like John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath and Travels with Charlie, and more recently like the stories of Charles Kerault, there are stories to be told about the American people who are daily struggling to live and re-establish their dreams. They are important stories to be told, not only to re-ignite compassion and understanding but, like post 911, to inspire America’s heart as a nation to work together in assuring a quick recovery to a state of greater strength, mutual support and decreased greed.

Books about the general concept of homelessness have been written such as the three-volume Homelessness in America, by Robert Hartmann McNamara, published in 2008. However, to my knowledge, no books have yet been published focusing on individual stories, especially from 2009. The dramatic increase in homelessness as a result of the economic recession is still too new.

You-Tube holds a great number of videos about tent cities and the subject of homelessness but does not chronicle the depth of each individual story. Print articles may appear in local papers, however only the result of homelessness is typically covered rather than the individual stories. When written with a constructive objective rather than simply reporting, these stories could help rebuild lives.

With regard to homeless veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs recognizes the issue but cannot keep up with the influx. According to National Adjutant Arthur H. Wilson, “We saw thousands of Vietnam veterans who ultimately became homeless, and we may be facing a new national crisis with the veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.” In 2006, one in four homeless were veterans. That number has climbed.

As the trend in increased unemployment and homelessness lags the projected economic recovery, there are many stories to be discovered and told in 2009. As this trend continues, the number of people who know or who have a degree of connection to the issue is dramatically increasing.

The current coverage of the issue of homelessness in connection with the economy takes national attention. Good Morning America has it AmeriCAN series to highlight people who are taking action to help others. Each day, snippets of stories are seen in the media. However, few are in depth.

The publication and distribution of a series of books can take an important step. It can record, in greater depth, these unseen and unheard stories of individuals who have experienced the worst and who survive. It can provide a written history giving their plight a sense of purpose by calling the nation together to help one another. In the end, hopefully, it will provide future generations inspiration and pride in their heritage rather than shame.

As a source of inspiration for future generations as well as a sobering history to ground the nation’s leaders in the reality experienced daily by the people, this book series is important. These stories can generate a timeless image of our nation by having not only the heart but also the courage to take action by finding and telling these stories.

There is a need for the nation to unite in a national movement to Employ The Unemployed. With the American people addressing the issue of unemployment head on, without waiting for legislation and political process, the economy will immediately improve.
