Sometimes I meet people who are really down on their luck. They’ve been out of work a while and feel their prospects are low. They can’t see a way out, and yet, to me, the path is so clear it’s practically paved in little yellow bricks. Recently, I talked with an engineer in just this situation. The game plan we came up with together is straightforward and simple and one you might want to try if you’ve already tried everything and still can’t find a job.
