Career Transitions In A Depressed Economy – Worth It?

Career Transitions In A Depressed Economy – Worth It?

I’m going through this as we speak. The former corporate management role I once had, is no more. While I don’t mind that, I still need a job, but who’ll hire me? I’m a minority three times over – Native American, female, middle-aged.

People have asked, “why don’t you start an 8A business??”, but what they don’t realize is, I don’t have the money to do that. I have plenty of hobbies that I could turn into a home-based business, but I don’t have the money to go without a full-time income at this point, so that idea is out.

Wouldn’t you know, the economy is still in a depression, and I refuse to believe it’s a recession – we had that before the last decade ended, and it’s much worse at this point. This economic depression might be slowly getting better, but there aren’t many places for someone my age and demographic. Or is there? What kind of career pays no attention to demographics?

I’ve decided to change careers entirely, so we’ll see where it goes. I think the key to a complete career change is to word your cover letter masterfully – pick a career you’d like, and build your past experience around that. I’m going to use my past to get into a another career altogether…I’ll let you know how it goes!

How Do You Bloggers Make Money? I’m Confounded…

Dearest readers and followers,

I’m not trying to be aggravating, I swear, but I don’t understand how you make money from blogging. Can one make money from having a WordPress blog? How do you guys get to “live the life you want”, get to travel, have a life, etc.? I have none of those things. Quite frankly, I’m single, job-hunting, relocating/moving, mostly-broke, and am looking for a fun way to make money on the side. I have 2 revenue streams at the moment (full-time job that went part-time + Zazzle store), but I could always make room for more as long as it’s not going to violate my privacy or go against my work ethic. Ultimately, I have to get a full-time job, but I tend to be a workaholic and even with a full-time job I can find time to write…something I love to do.

I see many of you have links to videos that show me how, but I’m asking if someone will cut-to-the-chase and just tell me. I can’t afford to spend money to make money at this point, so I’m hoping it’s not a multi-level marketing thing.  I’m listening…

Will you please help a Cousin out?

¡MUCHAS GRACIAS!

¿¿¿¿¿¿¿Can Anybody Help Me Get A Tech Support Job????????



Alrighty blog viewers, it’s entirely possible that you can help me get my next job!

~What will I do in return – um, dinner? No idea, but I can reward you somehow~



I’m all about relocating and traveling, and I’ve decided to move to the Wilmington, Delaware area – land of corporations! I’ll even move to Dover if the job is right.

  • I do desktop and network tech support – internal or external – and I have 15+ years of experience.

  • I know both Windows and Mac – hardware and software.

  • I’d love to work from home – telecommuting is fun!

  • I have a profile on LinkedIn.com – please contact me for more info.

  • I’m willing to travel, relocate, work night shifts, be on call – no young kids or spouse, so I’m free to move about the cabin.

  • …Except that I won’t fly. I’ll drive anywhere, though.

  • I don’t own a home, but I want to help my grown son get one – I need a secure job on paper in order to help him.

**I expect the unexpected, so at least I’ll take a shot at the blogging community to see what comes of it – surprise me!**

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!
