After being laid off in 1994, Susan P. Joyce began studying, writing, and speaking about the then-brand new field of online job search with a focus on safe and effective job search techniques, building on her experience in military intelligence, Human Resources, and information technology.
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 salary survey 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.
