Service meta-journalism: after reading our series of unemployment stories, a staffer at ABC News sent us the following note:

I've been reading the stories you've been posting from unemployed readers. We're actively looking to see if anyone would like to be aided by a job coach for a "20/20" segment; here's a link for more information and to sign up: [Need Job Coaching? '20/20' Can Help]

It's not a job, but it's something. Just apply on their site if you're interested. (We are not affiliated with ABC News.)
