Tips for the Unemployed, both Practical and Philosophical

Today I came across the blog of Michelle Alton, a career pharma professional who has found herself recently unemployed. Alton has chosen to spend her "downtime" and job search proactively--travelling, blogging, and exploring LinkedIn and other professional networking sites. And she's doing it all while being her "optimistic, cheerful old self." Michelle's sense of humor is apparent in the name she's chosen for her blog: Talented Sr Clin Ops Professional Seeking Position.

Her latest post is particularly good, and includes words of advice for those who want to use LinkedIn wisely.
