Susan P. Joyce - Online Job Search Expert
After being laid off in 1994, Susan P. Joyce began studying, writing, teaching, and speaking about the field of online job search with a focus on smart and effective job search techniques, building on her experience in military intelligence, Human Resources, and information technology.
Affiliated with MIT since 2011, Susan has held Visiting Scholar appointments with the MIT Sloan School of Management since 2013. Susan has been assisting in the efforts to determine the problems faced by the long-term unemployed, particularly those over 50, and the solutions to those problems. The goal is to help those who have been unemployed for more than six months find employment more quickly and easily.
Both of Susan's websites, Job-Hunt.org (don't forget that hyphen) and WorkCoachCafe.com, were selected for the Forbes 2013 Top 100 Websites for Your Career!
Since 1998, Susan has been Job-Hunt's chief writer and editor (a partial list of articles written by Susan P. Joyce), publisher, and Webmaster. Job-Hunt is one of the top employment portals on the Web, selected in 2006 by US News & World Report as one of the top sites for finding work and described by Reader's Digest as "vacuum-packed with solid advice."
Since 2011, Susan has also been chief blogger and editor of WorkCoachCafe.com, another website devoted to helping job seekers find employment.
Susan has been quoted in hundreds of articles, books, and Websites including TIME, FORTUNE, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and many others.

Counting her Honorable Discharge from the United States Marine Corps, Susan is a two-time layoff "graduate." She was also one of thousands of people laid off in 1994 by Fortune 50 company, Digital Equipment Corporation, which has since disappeared. These two experiences are the impetus behind Job-Hunt.org.
Based on her pre-Digital experience working in Harvard University's Personnel Office and in a Boston compensation consulting company as well as her numerous industry contacts, Susan has written and spoken extensively on the subject of online job search and was a pioneer in this relatively new field. Susan also teaches employers and recruiters how to recruit employees online.
