This week, we are very pleased to welcome author, syndicated columnist, and former HR executive Nan S. Russell, to the roster of accomplished job search and career professionals contributing their expert advice to help Job-Hunt’s visitors.
As Job-Hunt’s Job Loss Recovery Expert, Nan will help Job-Hunt’s visitors bounce back after job loss through her articles in Job-Hunt’s new Job Loss Recovery section. To get started, read Nan’s first article, 3 Tracks to Accelerate Your Job Loss Recovery.
Nan has a B.A. from Stanford University in Psychology and a M.A. from the University of Michigan in Educational Psychology. Leader of the popular Rebooting After Job Loss seminars, Nan will help those Job-Hunt visitors who have lost their jobs, or who have friends or family members who have lost jobs, to recover from this often-traumatic experience.
Nan has experienced the trauma of being fired - from her first professional job after college, no less. So, although she moved on to a very successful career as both an HR executive and line manager, even heading a subsidiary, she has personal knowledge of how painful and difficult recovering from a job loss can be.
Since 2006, Nan has been President of MountainWorks Communications LLC, a company she founded to support her passion for helping organizations build winning work cultures, and helping people bring the best of who they are to the world, realize their dreams, and live their life’s potential.
Nan’s first book, Nibble Your Way to Success: 56 Winning Tips for Taking Charge of Your Career, debuted in March, 2007. Her second book, Hitting Your Stride: Your Work, Your Way, released in January, 2008 by Capital Books, won a 2009 Axiom Business Book Award. Currently, Nan is working on book three: NEXT! Rebooting After Job Loss. Her work insights column, Winning at Working appears in over ninety publications.
Nan’s education, experience as an HR executive, plus her personal experience with job loss, will provide Job-Hunt’s visitors with helpful and very well-informed articles on this often-difficult transition from job loss to re-employment. Yes, it does happen! Even in this economy!
