I have for the better part of the last decade been redirecting my efforts to become a renewable energy engineer and conceptual designer of hybrid renewable energy systems since surviving the dot-com of the 1990s. I’m not shy about taking bold risks for the sake of maintaining a creative approach to my work or job search. Last month, there was the following read in the San Francisco Magazine that I found rather affirming to the process I have been immersed in for a number of years. I am, indeed, not alone. http://www.modernluxury.com/san-francisco/story/the-reinvention-chronicles

Anyone who has been unemployed these past few years knows, it’s no longer about resumes and contacts. I realized some many, many years ago, after my third company merger in four years that the rules were different. It’s a new social movement going on worldwide in the workplace that I do not think has been fully acknowledged, yet.

Also of interest, a recently published book titled “Company of One – Insecurity, Independence, and the New World of White-Collar Unemployment” was put out by Cornell University Press. http://www.cornellpress.cornell.edu/book/?GCOI=80140100974400
