Posted Monday, September 7, 2009

Labor Day brings an unofficial end to summer and a well-deserved focus on the people who keep the wheels of commerce turning. Monday we're going to look at the world of work from the perspective of those not working. In Ohio, that's 11.2% of the work force. In a special presentation called "Looking for Work: A History of Unemployment" the producers of BackStory examine joblessness over the years and how it's shaped American lives and brought change to the social and economic landscape. Join us Monday at 9:00 a.m. The Sound of Ideas returns Tuesday.

Fully recovered economy is what most of us are anticipating to happen soon. But yes, it will never be that easy and opportunities won’t be on its bounty phase. Competitiveness is what we need. If you are looking for a new job – or are enduring unemployment, it’s time to update your resume, and some cover letter tips can help you punch it up.  You might need some cover letter tips – and you want it to pop off the page and make that HR stuff shirt think they should give you THEIR job.  First, give examples of your best attributes, and keep it short.  Make sure you know how to write a cover letter in a formal business style, and make sure it is going to appeal to the company you are applying to.  You’d have a better chance with cover letter tips, than trying to find the best personal loan rates from a payday lender if you are unemployed.
