Got some ink ...

OK, so the P.R. guy can't help getting juiced over "getting some ink" ... and I'm in today's Tribune as part of a story about job seekers!

The gal who did the interview is Julie Wernau (@littlewern), who was the former blogger for The Job Stalker blog over on the Trib's Chicago Now site. I'd gotten connected with her on-line in following up on trying to be the new blogger for that "column" (so far no word on how that's going), so she knew where to get a hold of me when she needed an interviewee.

Needless to say, I'd have been MUCH happier had I been being interviewed BY the Tribune for one of the half-dozen or so jobs that I have resumes in for over there, but I guess I need to take "good news" where I can find it, and the piece certainly paints me in a positive light (I'm the example of the "overqualified" worker!). Maybe somebody will read that and say "Gee, this guy sounds like just what we're looking for!" ... would be nice.

That article again ...

Gee ... I guess nobody bothered to click through to see the article ... at least nobody said anything. I decided to do a "cleaned up" graphic of this for my files ... maybe folks will take a look at this if it's right in their face (click for the full size):

Needless to say it's nice "getting ink", but I sure would prefer getting a job. Pretty depressed about this all tonight.
