What should this become?

The organizing event for this blog will be a weekly meeting of people looking for work in Seattle and sharing effective things they/we've done over the last week. The outline I have going in has two parts:
  1. What was done in the last week?
  2. What had a positive outcome (no matter how small)?

As part of 2. diving into a particular area/skill/tool each week to understand how to use it and how to optimize it. Some things are really intended to allow us to spend more months looking without loosing our homes, and some things are designed to get us in the door and some things are designed to identify the right doors, so which of these should be considered and how often?

The first meeting is intended to validate this and start to create a list of specific topics inside of part 2.

  1. I'd like to add an additional wrinkle: not only jobs but engagements. The more I've seen of the highly specialized technician jobs that people are trying to fill, the more irretrievably I've found myself in consulting. I hope that the effective sharing would include not only how to use a network to open doors, but how to figure out which doors are worth trying to open anyway.
