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, in the area of Higher Education/Student Personnel Services (e.g., all things student services related including registration, advising, counseling, etc.) and all except for one college were nonprofit. My area of expertise is in Student Affairs, and I held professional staff positions ranging from Academic Advisor 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 located on my page titled, “A Brief Bio,”and also on my second blog, “Reflections,” created in April 2018, at this link.
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 in April 2009, and I was never able to secure another job in my professional field after a solid six-year search for it. I guess you could say I’m officially retired at this point in time (although I’d still rather be employed).
I ended up deleting my first several months of blog posts that I started publishing in July 2010 at the beginning of April 2011. Back then, I was just getting the hang of writing blog posts and most of those first posts sounded more like a personal diary. However, three months later in July 2011, I fired my blog back up and this time it just took off, and I am still publishing on it over a decade later. There are now close to 700 blog posts on it.
