Many people out there are in pain.  Their financial situations are dire.  They have lost their jobs, their life savings and in many cases, their self-respect while chasing around looking for a new position.

It's that "chasing around" part that started to bother me many years ago, long before today’s economic turmoil started creeping toward critical mass.  It became obvious to me that far too many people were conducting their job searches in an illogical and self-defeating way.  They were lured into the easy, deceptive world of Internet job boards where hunting for a job simply meant finding an interesting opening, uploading a resume and cover letter, clicking a few buttons, then waiting for a response. 

But the folly of this approach is that the job board, at best, is nothing more than a piece of software.  It cannot engage in meaningful two-way communication with humans.  Without a human-to-human “networking” component in the equation, how can anyone expect to get meaningful results?

This is the connectionless void in which so many people have spent thousands of hours toiling their lives away in the false hope that a database somewhere in cyberspace would electronically ride to their rescue, find them a job, reinstate the flow of money into their households, and make things right with the world again.

How much more wrong could they have possibly been?
