Get Back to Work: The Checklist

Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move my upcoming book that will be released later this summer – is something I never thought that I could, or would  write… but circumstances in my life changed that.  Back in 2009 when I was laid off my from job in corporate America after over a decade of working in staffing and recruiting, I thought I would jump right back into the workforce with a new job quickly.  During my year and half journey of unemployment and, more importantly, reinvention, I was also helping others to find work.  In 2010 I became involved with Active Job Seekers of America where I was president of the local chapter and then volunteer executive director, a position I still hold today.

Sutter's Fort Calls Out for Volunteers!

If you are passionate about California’s fascinating history and would enjoy sharing and demonstrating the compelling stories from the mid-1800s, consider becoming a volunteer at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park!
