DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Many North Texans have their thoughts on Thanksgiving, but for some finding a job would be something to truly be thankful for.

A new website started up by women for women hopes to help this holiday.

According to the creators of unemployedwoman.com, a growing number of North Texans are using their website as a resource.

Fort Worth resident Nancy Carefoot normally surfs the web for fun, but lately she’s online looking for a new beginning.

“Just trying to stay very positive,” says Carefoot “There have been lots of prayer.” Carefoot lost her job a few weeks ago and she’s now in the process of finding a new job in a tough economy.

“I’d like a position doing accounting,” says Carefoot.

Carefoot, 54, is not afraid of putting herself out there, she’s even turned to unemployedwoman.com for help.

As she searches for what could help her, she comments about one of the sections “…that looks like that would be a good way to learn market yourself.”

Two friends Gail Fine and Syndi Blatt from New Jersey are behind the website. The women post job fairs in cities across the country every day, including one posted in Dallas on December 1 at the Radisson Hotel & Suites on West Mockingbird Lane.

The site also includes forums where you can vent and free resources for those looking for work. “I really think that the networking will be the best way to find another job,” says Carefoot.

For Nancy it’s another tool to find the right job it’s something she hopes happens before Christmas.
