Thanks!

This is actually a huge firm that I just happen to recognize because a close friend who was laid off in Chicago was given a 3-month access to their advisory services as part of her severance package.

Now we'll just have to figure out what are the questions we might want to ask!

Actually, I should probably add one piece of advice that they gave to my friend in Chicago the first day they spoke with her. And that was about the importance and usefulness of LinkedIn.com. So if anyone here who's looking for a professional job does not have an updated LinkedIn profile yet, now's the time!

LinkedIn has been used for years by companies and recruiters looking for employees, especially in white-collar positions, and its use has expanded tremendously with this recession I believe. It's a way also of re-connecting with former colleagues and giving and requesting referrals that can be seen by potential employers. It's essentially a free web page for your job-hunting purposes. Works sort of like Facebook, et al, but focuses on employment connections, not personal friends. One of the beauties of it is that usually when you input your name in Google, your LinkedIn profile comes up at or almost at the top of any search.
