Economic crunch put you out of a job? Talk about your skills with pride online.Steve Pieczko got laid off in January. He was working for a security company that was acquired by Ameritech, and middle managers were the first to go. But did he sit around and brood? No. Figuring that there were many people in his position, he launched www.igotlaidoff.com, a site that matches the laid-off with recruiters trying to fill jobs.
Pieczko cannot credit the site with landing his new jobhe found his new job just as the site launched. But so far, 18 other people have found jobs through the site, and anywhere from 100 to 300 people register with the site each day.
