Most of my work life has been as a Recruiting leader in for-profit organizations. I also would help outplaced employees, being invited on occasion to speak to people who were in transition. I really enjoyed giving people hope and ideas on finding another job. About eight years ago, I moved to a non-profit focused on workforce development for low income, older adults. Yes, I got paid for using my experience with job search principles, resumes, interviewing, etc. for this mission oriented work! I am now the COO of this organization and still growing professionally and personally.
