I first came across Mitch Derman when I participated in HAPPO (how great was that?). He took me up on my offer to showcase job seekers on my blog but, as luck would have it, was imprisoned by my spam filter that day.
To make up for it, I asked Mitch if he’d like to guest post on WUL, which is what led to a precursor to this post. I got delayed in publishing it, so what a grand surprise it was when Mitch asked if he could edit it slightly because… he’d found a job!
Here are some great lessons he shares while on the search (image, Sascha Assbach, Creative Commons). And congrats, Mitch.
In my mind, every time that I envisioned getting laid off, I always thought there would be an empty box by my desk.
