Networking, Job Skills, Assistance – How Effective in Today’s Economy?

Resume writing, interviewing, networking, job skills, and employment assistance. There are many organizations lending a hand trying to help out those unemployed or under employed. All of these ideas or suggestions may be useful with 4 to 7% unemployment but will many of these tools and approaches work with 9.5 or 10% unemployment?

I know people who are volunteering their time in the hopes of helping people find gainful employment but how many of these tools or resources are effective? On the other hand, which ones? There are so many job related resources available and many organizations — especially churches are doing what they can to assist those in need to find work. How can we measure its effectiveness?

This model may work during normal recessions but as we know in the States, this is not a normal recession. As more and more organizations get involved and use similar tools to help those in need, will some of the value provided lose of its effectiveness? In other words, will your knowledge and tools being used to gain a competitive edge (and being used by others) reduce its overall effectiveness?
