    I worked for Pfizer Brooklyn for 12 years and was laid off due to plant closing. I then worked for Icon Laboratory for 1 year due to down sizing. To make a long story shory I lost two great jobs in the last 3 years. My husband also worked for Pfizer for 10 years and lost his job. We are both unemployed while trying to raise two kids ages 5 and 13. We now moved from NYC to GA hoping the change would bring better luck but we have not beeen able to find jobs. We have been here for 3 months and we are struggling to make ends meet. I have a Ba in Africana Studies and a minor in Health and Nutrition. My husban have a BA in Business Adminiswtration but most of our experiences are in the INDUSTRIAL field.

    A great service! I was wondering if there have been any follow-ups with the 30-second presenters – like have they had any offers or actually been offered a position? I believe it would be interesting if you guys could do a quick segment based on following up on some of the presenters... Thanks

    Dr. Carpenter was so impressive. What a handsome and articulate man. You should give him work with CNN as a medical correspondent like he said he wants. I'm sure America would love to get information from him about their medicine and health. Thanks CNN for another great segment.
