job advice for smart relative (BS//MBA) with weak resume by Strategery

I have a relative that has spent the past 10 years underemployed and at a start up. He was 6-figures before he took a buyout, but cant get back on a solid career track in this economy. Any suggestions for professional jobs in Minneapolis or Chicago that can allow him to get back on track?

He has been in the energy field, initially utilities and more recently a niche coal gasification startup that has no money to even pay him. Engineering undergrad in the midwest and MBA at Northwestern. He is in is mid 40's and healthy, but I'd guess his discouragement is getting in the way of finding anything.
