Nancy Hubbard, an unemployed business management professional from Wilsonville, Oregon, is guest blogging on Laid Off Loser Thursday and Friday, April 30 and May 1.
Nancy, who recently was laid off from her job as a development and construction manager in the health service industry, came up with a novel strategy for finding work: She offered to do any job in any field for free for two days.
After hearing of Nancy’s project, Laid Off Loser contacted her with an offer to blog about her experiences as she looks for steady work and test-drives new careers.
For her first blog entry, Nancy examines the ripple effect of losing her job: She cancelled her newspaper subscription, switched to a cheaper grocery store, stopped eating out and made many other lifestyle changes.
While looking for full-time, paid work, in addition to working for free Nancy is using her business management experience to offer development consulting services.
Keep checking back over the next two days to read more from Nancy. She can be reached by e-mailing email@example.com.
