Just got dumped amidst the dot-com crash, but don't want to put your personal e-mail address on your résumé?

Just got dumped amidst the dot-com crash, but dont want to put your personal e-mail address on your résumé? (Why not? Its that embarrassing, huh?)

Ijustgotfired.com fixes that problem. The Web site allows you to choose a name for your ijustgotfired.com e-mail, and any mail sent to that address will be forwarded to your personal e-mail.

"Wear your badge of modern worth proudly, let people know that youve joined the ever-growing legions of high-tech unemployables," instructs the site.

And, because your old business cards can now be used as coasters, you also can download the ijustgotfired "out-of-business" cards—complete with their dropping bomb logo. Pass those out on interviews, and we bet theyll remember you.
