If you are unemployed but living your best life, then more power to you! For everyone else? We need a roof over our head, bills to pay, and a life that we want to enjoy too! So, if you are out of work, or it's time for you to move on from your current role, then this chat is for you!  Special guest, Chandra L. Gary, discussed these 3 secrets to staying unemployed:

  1. Have no clue of what you want to do, where you want to do it and no motivation to find out.

  2. Make sure your job search documents are jacked up (if you have them at all).

  3. Excel at Inappropriate Social Media Journalism.
