well i doubt if you would put mine in the reject pile since the first line of my resume is connected to the open position.

I have 25 years of business experience. CIO, CFO, CAO. I am a CMA, I have a B.S. an MBA and a Doctorate. I started teaching at the university (assistant professor) 4 years ago. I am on target to make tenure.....
.........but I got laid off...now I'm collecting unemployment...not because I'm a crummy teacher or researcher...but because of a lack of students and funding!!!!

I've been out of work now for 6 months and unemployment is going to run out. I have a home, children, pets, etc. I am REALLY worried.

I apply for EVERYTHING on line. I use head hunters. I send out blind letters.....

any ideas?????

It's my understanding that community colleges have seen a surge in student populations and are hiring adjunct as a result. Also with your background you should be able to find a finance/accounting job.

Idea: Go to Las Vegas and Network! Here is the link of their upcoming event:

National Association of Colleges and Employers (http://www.naceweb.org/default.asp - broken link)


It is cheap to get there if you start now with travelocity alerts to your email.

good luck

p.s. See if they have a hostel or inexpensive bed /breakfast or look at the temporary/vacation rentals on Craigs List!

I didn't mean a long term top level job. Have you gotten in with the temp agencies like Robert Half?

Not if you are looking for adjunct and temp work. How many community colleges expect their adjuncts to stay around long term?

Adjunct work would look better than nothing on your CV.

i am not sure if you are interested but they are hiring guidance counselors where i work.

I listed the job on my 10 plus employers thread down below. But can send it again.

Couple of things, it is in Philadelphia and it is helpful if you are a minority.

cheers!
