Job idea thread for new grads and anyone else looking for work

December 11, 2012

What about all of us contributing to this thread and coming up with ideas about how to help others seeking work and employment? What if we all try and help each other with some ideas here?

It relates to new UGA graduates not being able to find work also.

Here are some thoughts from J.J. Luna, and some recent news pieces about the economy in North Dakota.

In order to supply enough of a workforce to staff the store near North Dakota’s thriving oil patch, the company is hiring 50 people from its hometown of Eau Claire, Wis. and flying them in every week.
