1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    If you had nothing to do last week and enjoyed the creativity of your last position, why not go to your supervisor and run some ideas past him/her? If you have the time and there are no projects coming in, ask for some creativity that benefits the company but also could align with your goals. Even if nothing comes of it, your supervisor will probably appreciate your being proactive.

    I've never looked at studies, but I'd have to assume that one of the reasons it's easier to find work while employed is psychological. You don't NEED it and that comes across in your self-confidence.

    It's a lot more than that. The company doing the hiring would rather hire someone who seems employable and sought-after, which you don't appear to be when you're unemployed. You just seem like damaged or unwanted goods, to a certain and varying extent (especially depending on how long you've been out of work).

    It's sort of like how girls are more into you when you're not single.
