It's over, America. The breaking news alerts, the Twitter speculation wars, the aerial shots of the big guy being whisked from private jet to late-model, tinted-window SUV, the grainy photos of him meeting with the rich-guy NFL owner du jour -- all of it comes to a merciful end. Yes, wonderful news: Peyton Manning has found a job. He'll quarterback the Denver Broncos next year. (That thumping sound you just heard was Tim Tebow being tossed out the back door of the Broncos' complex like the morning's trash.)

Ravens inside linebacker Josh Bynes is entering his fourth season the most secure he's ever been in his standing on the team. Coach John Harbaugh said he considers the rugged linebacker a quality NFL starter. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees said he has "no qualms" playing Bynes in the middle of the team's defense. But having ended previous training camps jobless and another bedridden with a broken back, Bynes hasn't yet shed the stigma or motivation that comes with being an undrafted player who spent years on the Ravens' roster bubble.

Dear Joyce: I was conned by a local job-search marketing firm, which has offices in one other city. With so many people out of work today it seems doubly unjust for the unemployed to be the target of a swindling job-search marketing firm.I was laid off from my job as an engineer in January. After a month of playing the job field and finding that pickings were slim, I came across an ad for a job-search marketing firm we'll call Brand X. In a meeting with my wife and me, the firm's representative told us the Brand X method of job-finding would provide me with information and insight that would give me an edge.

The Orioles' process of hiring a new pitching coach is winding down, according to the club's top executive, with the hope of having someone in place by next week. “We have a little more work to do on our due diligence; we want to make the best choice in our job search,” Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. “We have some well-qualified candidates, and we should be able to have a top quality coach on our staff before it's over. … We'd like to get it done before the end of the month.” The Orioles have interviewed four external candidates for the position that was vacated by Rick Adair: former Philadelphia Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee, Seattle Mariners pitching coach Carl Willis, Texas Rangers bullpen coach Andy Hawkins and Atlanta Braves minor league pitching coordinator Dave Wallace.

During this time of the year, many workers are looking for new careers. One of the best ways to find job opportunities is through the Internet, whether it be Craigslist or one of the numerous job-posting Web sites. Knowing how to navigate the online labyrinth could mean the difference between your resume getting lost in the pile or snagging an interview.

One of the big don'ts in searching for a new job is insulting your most recent employer. That holds true when in interviews with a potential new employer and when conducting your job search. It's in poor taste to openly search for a new job while at work, which can lead to other repercussions if your employer wasn't aware you are looking to leave. Take advantage of private moments to pursue your job search. The Wall Street Journal reports that many employees who can telecommute make good use of the days they work from home.

Getting a new job can be hard work. Classifieds and job boards are good sources for job leads. It is easier to find the right job when you ask others for help. Try this: Take a sheet of paper and take three minutes to quickly jot the names of 30 people you know ... from anywhere. Church, syna gogue, day care, parents of children in same activities, the gym, friends of friends, etc. Create a plan to ensure that each one knows of your job search. Word of mouth is one of the best ways to find the perfect job. Open up your options by getting others to help you with your search.

WHEN ONLY THREE of 25 job seekers actually find work in two months, you might say it's a discouraging employment market. But the encouraging aspect is that these people were welfare applicants, pushed to find work under Carroll County's new Up Front Job Search program.Applicants have been told since March 1: Make five contacts each week to find a job, or lose full welfare benefits. That's been enough to motivate most eligible applicants -- 80 percent were exempt because they have children under 3 years old -- to at least make the required effort.

Karen L. Sitnick's job is jobs — helping people find them. As director of the Mayor's Office of Employment Development in Baltimore, she oversees an effort that isn't simple, even in the best of times, as residents struggle to overcome education gaps and other challenges. The recession and slow recovery have tested job seekers and their helpers alike. Baltimore's unemployment rate is averaging about 10 percent this year, better than the 12 percent in 2010 but still far above prerecession levels.

If the federal government's job application process seems impenetrable to you, take heart: There are people whose own jobs revolve around demystifying it. Sharon Dee McCrae, an employment specialist with the Susquehanna Workforce Network, a nonprofit that coordinates workforce development programs in Harford and Cecil counties, is one of those people. A certified federal job search trainer and career coach, McCrae runs workshops and works one-on-one with applicants. What are the big differences between applying for a federal job and applying for a private-sector one?

When Justen Garrity left the Army for the business world, his five years as an officer, experienced in combat, engineering and leadership, mattered little to prospective employers. "The deck is stacked against the military in this job market," said Garrity, 30. "Any good military person can learn any job. They are adaptive leaders, but employers don't see that as experience in marketing and management. "In Iraq, I was in charge of an area the size of West Virginia. Back home, I could not get a job as a bank teller or a desk clerk at a hotel.

If I were President Obama, I would not try to defend my record of the last almost four years and instead ignore it completely, depending on charm rhetoric and likability for reelection ("Obama's downsized ambitions," Sept. 9). Certainly there has been little either in domestic or foreign policy to point at with pride, now culminating in the sacking of our embassies overseas and the murder of an ambassador in purportedly friendly countries. Our attempts at making allies in the Muslim world has been an abject failure.

Mike Hartnett is one of hundreds laid off from Sparrows Point this month as the steel mill's owner looks for a buyer. He came back Tuesday in search of a Plan B: What to do if the Baltimore County plant closes for good. "This place can make money and we know it," the Dundalk man said. But he can't afford to sit back and assume all will be well. "I've got a daughter in college," he said. Hartnett and dozens of laid-off colleagues met at the Sparrows Point complex Tuesday for the first session of a two-day resource fair, put on by state and local officials to help workers start their job search and connect them with assistance, including food stamps and foreclosure prevention services.

Members of the Class of 2012, As a former secretary of labor and current professor, I feel I owe it to you to tell you the truth about the pieces of parchment you're picking up today. You're screwed. Well, not exactly. But you won't have it easy. First, you're going to have a hell of a hard time finding a job. The job market you're heading into is still bad. Fewer than half of the graduates from last year's class have as yet found full-time jobs. Most are still looking. That's been the pattern over the last three graduating classes: It's been taking graduates more than a year to land the first job. And those who still haven't found a job will be competing with you, making your job search even harder.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - In a job market so tight that every edge counts, some laid-off workers are hoping that a face lift will give them a foot in the door. At the residents' cosmetic clinic in the Stanford Medical Center, about half the patients in the past couple of years have been tech industry workers looking for a boost in their job searches, said supervisor Dr. David Apfelberg. The clinic offers cosmetic surgery by residents in their final year at reduced rates, and operates on 75 to 100 patients a year.
