Seth Fiegerman from MainStreet.com sent an e-mail to us looking for Unemployed Americans:
Hi, I’m working on a new series for MainStreet.com, a personal finance site, about the faces of the unemployed. Every few weeks, we will feature stories and updates from unemployed Americans from all walks of life. At the moment, we are looking to reach out to anyone who is out of work and still looking. I was wondering if you might be able to pass this info along to the community at Pink Slips Are the New Black.
Thanks for your help with this,
Staff Writer, MainStreet

Two of my fellow Columbia J-Schoolers are looking for an unemployed New Yorker near his/her last unemployment check to profile for a new media project. Here’s the e-mail I got:
My name is Shefali Kulkarni and I’m a reporter with the Columbia Journalism School here in New York. My colleague Sarah and I are doing an online media project about the unemployed New Yorker. We are looking for New Yorkers who may be running on their last unemployment check. Would you happen to know anyone in the New York area who we could profile?
Shoot Shefali an e-mail if you have any leads at firstname.lastname@example.org.
