Meanwhile, I've been an at-home mom for five years and needed to get employed right away, so I'm temping. Hello Liz, You helped us with Bay area Coho info. during our move from Seattle. At the moment we are desperately looking for Berkeley's new name and any other East Bay communities near Fremont, San Ramon, Walnut Creak. Any thoughts? Anybody? Since we are still living with relatives in the SF bay area and making some progress toward work, I'd just like to pass on the methods that worked so far, and wish you the best during your job transition. After being in the SF bay area for 5 weeks, we've made the security check stage for a $20k yr. food service job and qualified for a 3rd interview in a $35-40k yr. job. in Fremont :) All these jobs are direct, and the best opportunities have all come from the same Web Site http://www.eastbayworks.org/ Eastbay Works Job Seeker Services Most of my interviews came from the ability call a person directly and from the EastBay works web site above. I also faxed, & emailed resumes in droves, but untold numbers of these blind fax/emails must fall into some kind of black hole. A direct phone line / voice message & post interview thank you letter has worked much better for us. This direct phone-call principle might also apply to the on-line classifieds, such as: SFGate: Who's Hiring? http://sfgate.com/whoshiring/ San Jose Mercury News JobHunter http://classifieds.sjmercury.com/classifieds/jobhunter/indexnojava.h tml #1 Technical Staffing Corporation http://www.tech-search.com/framesetN.html?clientAgentIS=NW4 You can also post resumes and do searches from http://www.careermosaic.com/ The internet newsgroups specific to the SF bay area, may also help if your expertise is in either computers or related recruiting / technical writing a2i.ba.jobs.offered a2i.ba.jobs.offered.hivol ba.jobs.agency ba.jobs.contract ba.jobs.contract.agency ba.jobs.direct ba.jobs.offerd ba.jobs.offered ba.jobs.resumes alt.bestjobsusa.sfransisco.jobs My progress has been related to having direct phone contacts and interviewing skills, which are improving, since I bought a $45.00 Thomas guide and stoped getting lost.
