‘“For Hire: I’m (very) desperate!” This was the classified ad I considered placing after a year-long stint on unemployment during one of the country’s worst ever economies.
To unemployment (hell) and back: Desperately Seeking Employment chronicles one woman’s journey through countless classifieds, headhunting offices, Craig’s List, social networking sites, bulletin boards, employment websites, and even the garbage can in search of a job. (ANY job).
Written with humor and eternal optimism, this unapologetic and upbeat 212 page memoir-style essay collection will have you laughing out loud and anxious to see where her next job interviewing adventure leads. From 911 operator to any available journalist opening, Lee sat through interviews for pretty much anyone who was hiring (and lived to write about it). For all those who’ve ever been unemployed, considered taking jobs they knew weren’t meant for them, or just plain looking for a laugh!
