I am a (near) mid-life Vancouverite recently laid off from a long term ESL teaching job. I am attempting to return to a communications career and want to use this blog to record the ups and downs and hopefully connect with others going through the same kind of thing.

  1. Hello,

    I just stumbled upon your post on Craigslist and came to check out your blog immediately.

    I was layed off from my last media job a year ago next month and like you I have decided to go into a new direction. I was in broadcasting for 27 years.

    I just wanted to leave a quick post for now, I have so much more to add but, check out this, I have to run along to my “seasonal job” I found late October at a major retailer.

    More later.

    All the best,


    1. great to hear from you, Thomas. I’ve been under the weather so not blogging as much but I’ll get back at it soon. I’m ery much looking forward to hearing more about your experience. And yeah, I’ve done those seasonal jobs – eeek!
