The Five Steps of Unemployment

Looking for a job?  Ben Parr directs Mashable readers to “30+ Websites to Visit When You’re Laid Off.”  He handily divides unemployment strategies into five steps, including finding psychological support and managing money, and then lists sites that will help within each step.  While Craigslist and Monster might be familiar, the Careeronestop Unemployment Benefits map might be news to you, not to mention sites like Workstir for contractors and Hotgigs for freelance consultants.

Even the biggest companies had their bailouts and many employees lost thousands of job since the beginning of the economic meltdowns. This is why you really should check out opportunity.gov. Opportunity.gov is a Federal website that is geared toward people dealing with unemployment. It has helps for worker retraining and Pell grants for people who want to go back to school, and unlike quick payday loans, you don't have to pay them back. The available funding for Pell grants has dramatically increased, and also the tax credits for college students with the American Opportunity Tax Credit, which are both part of President Obama's plans for supercharging higher education in our nation. Taking advantage of opportunity.gov might mean getting a job good enough that you'll never worry about debt relief. http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/05/08/opportunitygov/
