The Game Your Mother Warned You Against.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

For those who have lost their jobs (as well as members of the Class of 2020 who haven't landed one) a standard option for making ends meet is closing up. The way it's played is to move the unpaid balance on a high-interest credit card to one which has no interest for a certain period of time. Instead, grab a job, any job to make ends meet.

Encore Careers - This One Can Be Ruled Out (for now)

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Those include being unpaid as the trucks are loaded or unloaded. The author of this blog, after talking with truck drivers, adds the negative of drivers' being continually pressured to meet tough deadlines, no matter what's taking place on the roads. After the end of the first career, many aging are healthy. They also get it that the more they keep earning now will make their lives more comfortable when they aren't so healthy or simply don't want to work any more.

Speak Schmeak

If you want to be a better speaker, today's post is meant for you. First of all, here are a few of the reasons I've heard for why someone would want to be better at public speaking: 1.

Goldilocks - Patron Saint for Class of 2018

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

I meet up with them in my recovery group. And, some contact me for  unpaid internships after they receive their degrees. Goldilocks didn't care what others thought - even if the "they" were supposedly powerful (.e.g. bears). She totally focused on her goal. She was willing to experiment (today we call that A/B testing). And, when she got what she was going after she fully enjoyed it.

Cover Letters - Tell Them What You Can Accomplish for Them and How

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

" Next, you ask for the opportunity to learn more about the details of their business by meeting with them. If not, because you have been unemployed, get new ones by doing unpaid assignments. Cover letters are the most important sales pitch those searching for jobs, contract assignments, and clients will ever make. Your living depends on their success. That means that, just as high-producing professional salespeople do, you focus on what you can accomplish for the recipient.

Speak Schmeak

They practice, they seek out opportunities wherever they can, they take unpaid gigs, and they do what they have to do to get as much experience and feedback as possible.

The Freelance Writing Life - Editors, Readers, Critics Expect You To Keep Up On Everything, Everyone

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

To even make ends meet, freelance writers have to be up-to-date on so many topics and players. In addition, they might require an unpaid original sample done by the writer, custom-made for their specs. It's a seismic shift. In more staid times, freelance writers could develop a niche expertise and make a predictably good living.

AT&T - Chest Pains, Recovered Alcoholic Craves Drink, Tears, and Lost Time from Business

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The billing on the new account (a downsized smart phone replacing the iPhone) would not proceed  The new account, because of an unpaid bill, would be shut down. I attended a 12-step meeting I hadn't planned on going to. AT&T is no longer a monopoly.    Yet, within less than a month I have had not one but TWO Ernestine moments. Those experiences were frequent back then when AT&T was the only telecommunications game in town.

We had a large number of guests at the meeting (eight). I usually dress very casually when I attend a club meeting. Pam Shinkle, our club President, told a story of an IRS agent trying to collect unpaid payroll taxes from a politician.

College: Going to visit the shrink, not the chapel

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

But that's the institution, not the unpaid inhabitants - the students.  What might have been more effective in getting me unstuck and back developmentally on-track might have been a part-time job, mandatory 90 meetings in 90 days at Alcoholics Anonymous, and an exploration of Eastern Thinking.  Higher education is taking it on the chin as a institution.    Right inside the academy, for example, Columbia University's Mark C.

The Eloquent Woman

She'll need to persist in seeking speaking opportunities, asking and networking in all her circles and beyond them; she may need to join some professional groups, a local Toastmasters organization or a local networking group to meet and make contacts.
