I come from the world of academia. For over twenty years 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; and I also fulfilled numerous other responsibilities. Additional background information is available on my author page titled, A Little About Me.”

Eight years ago I lost a job a scant seven months after I started it. What I didn’t realize at the time I lost that job was that it had detoured my career and my ability to earn a living into the world of long-term unemployment. While undertaking a major job search of several years’ standing, I started this blog in July 2010 as a way to journal my experiences with long term unemployment and its effect on my life and my livelihood. I was new to blogging back then, and I spent several months just playing around with it. I ended up deleting those posts I wrote at the beginning as there was no common thread linking them together–they were much like a personal diary, and boring, to boot. However, three months later in July 2011, I fired my blog back up and this time it just took off.
