Unemployment soars to 9.8%, but SEO Offers Comfort for Job Seekers!

Today’s unemployment rate of 9.8% marked the 19th straight month of 9.4% or higher, which is a record high! Furthermore, only 39,000 jobs were created in November. Despite these dire numbers, job seekers can find both jobs and job strategies from SEO (Search Engine Optimization)!

Over the last few months, I have built up one of the largest SEO (Search Engine Optimization) groups in the Chicago area with almost 500 members. This is because: 1) search engines are the new Yellow Pages 2) the field of SEO focuses on getting you ranked high with search engines and 3) there are many ways SEO practices can be adapted to help job seekers stand out during these tough employment times.

I invite you as my special guest for our SEO group’s end-of-the-year extravaganza on Monday, December 13th from 5:30 to 8 p.m. which two of the world’s top SEO experts will be flying in to speak at. Though we are completely full with a long waiting list, if you contact me shortly, I may be able to squeeze you in for this unique event.
