Hello and welcome! In this video, I will talk about job hunting, good ways to search, how to write a resume and cover letter, how to handle phone and face to face interviews, what to wear and how the job market has changed.

Great advice for anyone looking for work. Please comment below with any questions you may have and I’ll give you my best answer, based on my own experience.

I’ve been working for over 40 years and have seen a lot of changes in the job market since that first job in 1974.

If you have been out of the workforce for years or are presently looking to change jobs, this is a great video for solid information on the work search process and landing that job!

Good luck and much success to you!
