Maybe some "lucky" unemployed people get outplacement services when they get booted from their jobs. But a lot of people have to handle their job search on the cheap. And not everybody's looking for work as a director or manager where the pathway is networking coffees and meeting with other laid off executives. Lots of people want to find positions supermarkets or customer service facilities or factories where the first go-round happens via computer. So how do you get a job in that scenario? I interviewed longtime job counselor Gloria Leidel about that very topic in today's Philadelphia Inquirer. Also check back at www.philly.com at noon today for an online chat with Gloria. She runs a free job club for unemployed people at  Goodwill Industries of Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia in their Maple Shade facility.
