Benefits of unemployment

There’s always a positive angle to just about everything. While looking for posted positions, revising my resume and creating new cover letters (yes, I can be taught), renewing connectings and building out my professional network takes time, there still is time in a day for other things.

I’ve been able to take advantage of this slack time to make myself available as a volunteer (here’s a huge list of opportunities to volunteer in Whatcom County) and to catch up on some computer-based educational opportunities and presentations from trade shows and the like.

It feels the same as being able to finally clean out my email inbox.
