Bringing home the bacon during this crisis

I never really wanted to add pessimism to the current crisis since every other day, I read and hear lay-off news in the media. It is already very depressing. If you have friends who are affected by the economic crisis, I am not sure if LIGHTSHIP RESEARCH will be of any help. But if their methodology and tools really work, it might be worthwhile to try. This is one testimonial the site carries:

I got laid off as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing of a new media company in the Bay area. I was recommended by a recruiter to call Lightship Research to help me with my job search, as I wanted to relocate to New York City. I was a little skeptical at first, as I had always used traditional recruiters in the past, but they were not producing any interviews and I needed a job quickly. I spoke with a reference that had used their services and decided to give them a try. Their strategist was very knowledgeable and came up with some good ideas. They really know how to get under the radar and find companies, that you would never have thought of and then find the direct hiring authority. I got four interviews and an offer in 30 days (yes in this economy), which I accepted. Lightship Research http://www.lightshipresearch.com you rock!
