2014 is starting off roughly for the unemployed, god bless'em. Sometimes, it makes you wonder if people just don't know how to find a job in the 21st century because everything seems so complicated. I was reading this page about job search skills and couldn't believe some of the information there: http://resumegenius.com/resume/job-search-skills How is someone who isn't able to use a computer supposed to compete? I'm barely familiar with some of that stuff, and I've been using a computer for most of my adult life. Sheesh.
