I have never been unemployed, but my job finding technique is more intensive than other people's (I used to bartend, & SOOOO many times I would have a customer show up at about lunch & tell me how they are looking for work, that they handed out some resumes that morning & now were going to sit at the bar & drink all day until they get a call)
When I am without a job (basically, when I first moved into a city), I would get up at 6 am, & then start walking, going into EVERY business to see if they are hiring. I keep doing that until I get a job. If the first day passes without me getting a job, I start the next day at 6am & go until the businesses are closed. I have NEVER done this for more than two days before finding a job. It may not have been a PERFECT job, heck, some of them were Down Right CRAPPY, but it is 100% easier to find a good job if you HAVE ANY job.
Now I work from home. Check out my webpage www.greenMOMteam.com
