WSJ Reports That Job Seekers Want to Find Resources and Contacts, Not Troll Job Fairs

Check out Joseph De Avila’s great article in today’s Wall Street Journal Career section titled “Ditching the Job Fair for  a Venting Opportunity”. It features our friends at Laidoff Moveon and LaidOffCamp.

The piece discusses events around the country that aren’t focused on recruiting but on meeting other laid-off people, trading job leads and exchanging resources. People helping people. Glad to know the word is still spreading, good karma is flowing and people are benefitting from others’ ingenuity!

  1. I guess the old job fairs are slowly fading its popularity. Meetups, I guess, are the better substitutes.

    It’s knowing that the other job seeker knows exactly your situation that is comforting. And the sharing of resources will always be a win-win concept for everybody.
