Job Hunting During COVID-19

So many people have lost their jobs this year. (I know this sounds like a joke, but it really happened): I received a cheerful notice from LinkedIn suggesting that I,

    What’s funny about that is that every time I put on my mask to go into a store I feel like saying I’m not here to rob you. I’m just looking around…. 🙂

    If things continue the way it is going the day may come when people will be able to have their “new position” of unemployed honed so good they may forget what employed is.

  6. In their different ways, the LinkedIn boner and the S. Killy (?) cartoon are hilarious.

    Would have thought there were no longer any computer professionals naive enough to make the kind of mistake exemplified by the boner.  Am pretty sure it is indeed a consequence of a programming mistake (not a nasty dig), partly because I can remember when such mistakes were fairly common and partly because of the principle that one should not attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity.

  8. Great cartoon which doesn’t make unemployment any easier. It took my daughter 2 1/2 years after the 2008 crash. A little luckier this time but that can change any minute. Keep finding the cartoons.

    Is robbery a suggestion for a new position? Not sure I’m up for the task seeing as how I don’t like guns but if I get desperate and give it a try, I’ll let you know how it all worked out 🙂

    What frightens me is the thought of how many restaurants will go under this winter if we haven’t found a vaccine or a treatment by then.

  11. My LinkedIn friends got a notice to congratulate me on my new job at ‘retired’. And I got a few congratulatory messages.
