As a recent liberal arts graduate, I’ve dutifully joined the pool of 14 million unemployed Americans, but I don’t plan to swim there long.  This blog is, as it claims, a chronicle of my unemployment, but more importantly I want it to be as much a resource as a comfort to those who find themselves in a similar situation. A bit of help and a good dose of comedic relief during a time that is, at best, trying.

Get ready to face my roadblocks, hurdles, triumph and failure as I attempt to navigate the road to gainful employment in the city that seems in need of nothing, New York. 

I hope we make it there in one piece.

  1. Good luck! You’ll make it ok. I was stunned to land in the suburbs of Detroit, confident I would get a public school teaching job. I have always, ALWAYS gotten a good job teaching. But in my mid 40’s, with some health issues, I was not willing to go back to the really desperate schools where I’d taught in my 20’s. I ended up compromising, teaching at a Catholic school for much less money, but it’s really fun. I do have the luxury of a husband with a decent job, so I can’t really complain. Consider stitching together some part time, day and night work. We did that in Maine for awhile. You can survive it for a few months, just to get some cash together.
