A Little Help?

There are a lot of reasons I don’t talk about work in this space that often. It’s a dangerous topic to touch. People have been fired for less. And even if a current employer doesn’t mind, if a blogger is out there looking for a new job, the potential for someone to not get an interview, or not get a job because of their personal blogs is not out of the realm of possibility.

And that’s exactly the scenario I’m looking at right now. The unfortunate reality of working in the non-profit world is that the money can dry up, and it can dry up quick. And that’s the situation I’m being faced with right now. Less than a year into my job, a job I love more than anything, I’ve got to face the music and start looking for another place of employ. And this isn’t me speculating. This is my boss telling me that it’s a good idea to keep my options open. Because we don’t have a time frame. And it might not happen. But even if it doesn’t, do I really want to stay? Because there’d be very little left to work on, even if they do keep us all around.

So I’m back where I was last January. And if anyone knows of any non-profit communications positions … well, send ’em my way.
