If you’ve recently lost your job, you’re not alone. However, a growing number of people are trying to take advantage  of the high unemployment rate. Considering all the folks who have been laid-off, it’s not surprising that some of them have found creative ways to profit from their situations. Some are making websites  and selling merchandise including customizable T-shirts  you can put your cover letter on, and all sorts of apparel announcing that you need a job. A little inventiveness can go a long way when you’ve lost your job, but if you’re not the type to think outside the box, it can’t hurt to let people know you’re looking for work.
