Out of work? How are you surviving?



Once a job-generating machine, Florida has led the nation in job losses recently. Tampa Bay has been the hardest-hit metro area. Nationwide, 9.5-million people are out of a job.

Behind the numbers are tales of financial woe, but there are also stories of adaptability and career changes.

If you have a story to share about how you're coping in tough economic times in a tight job market, we would like to hear about it.

  • If you're out of work, how are you surviving?
  • How are your prospects for getting a new job?
  • Have you changed fields as a result of the economic turmoil?
