From Riding The Internet Boom, To Not In Demand...
Bob Congdon had a link to an article on his blog the other day... From Riding The Internet Boom, To Not In Demand
This article made me stop and think... I'm more sensitive to being laid off now since the Enron experience. As I was looking for work, I had more than one moment where I wondered if I would ever be able to get a job in IT again. Reading this, I was reminded that everyone has a story, and you never know how or why someone is doing what they do to earn a living. And how often do *I* conveniently "not see" people who are working in service jobs that are deemed unimportant by society?
Does it really cost me anything to say hello and offer a genuine smile? To notice that they exist and do a job that in some way makes things a little nicer for me?
