Punk Rock HR Question: Unemployed for Two Years


I’m traveling, today. Rather than respond to a slew of email messages, let me give you some career advice based on a few notes in my inbox.

If you haven’t been able to find a job in two years within your field, the universe is sending you a message. You are no longer part of that field. It’s time to broaden your search. You should have expanded it six months ago, but I don’t want to judge you.

Look for something else. Now.

And no — going back for your MBA will not help. Don’t listen to your stupid brother-in-law who works in finance. He’s an idiot.

That is all.
