I come from the world of academia. For over two decades I worked in higher education at colleges and universities, large and small, public and private, secular and Christian, and all except one was nonprofit. My area of expertise is in Student Affairs, and I held professional staff positions ranging from Academic Advisor to Coordinator to Director. I also worked with a variety of students (primarily adult students and graduate students) as well as staff, faculty, and administrators. Additional background information is available on my page titled, “A Brief Bio,” and another brief bio can be read on my second blog, “Reflections,” created in April 2018 at this link.
Several years ago (in April 2009) I lost a job after only a scant seven months from when I started it; and also after having worked in my professional field for over twenty years. While undertaking a major job search over the next several years, I started this blog in July 2010 as a way to journal my experiences with long term unemployment as I lost my job at the peak of a recession that occurred back then. I ended up deleting my first several months of blog posts as I was just getting the hang of writing blog posts; however, three months later in July 2011, I fired my blog back up and this time it just took off, and here I am still publishing on it several years later. And since I never did find another job in my professional field, I am now officially retired from the world of academia.
There are currently almost 600 blog posts on my blog, and all of the blog posts are listed by title in a “Table of Contents” and linked for easy access at this link. The table of contents page is also listed at the top of this blog titled “Links To All Blog Posts.”
NEW BLOG STARTED IN 2018
On April 11, 2018, I started a second blog titled “Reflections” on WordPress. The theme of this blog is on travels and journeys through life, both physical and spiritual. Click here or on the link below to go to that new blog.
