So, your Internet start-up went belly-up, and you're back out there, for the first time in years, pounding the pavement for a new job. Maybe you're wondering what kind of a job you'll be qualified for in the non-wired world. Maybe you're worried that you'll have to take a job that's less promising than the one you lost.

Why not ease your mind by making a list of the bare minimum requirements for any job you'll consider?

Here's a little something to keep in mind: When the country is not experiencing a time of unprecedented economic expansion and an inconceivably explosive growth of wealth, your POTENTIAL EMPLOYER is generally the one with the list of bare minimum requirements of you, the potential employee.

For example, your potential employer might require that you not take your shoes and socks off at your desk, or that you not bring your dog to work, or that you show up at 8:30 am each day.

Weird, huh?

Next...Formulating a plan d'action!
