lHave you been laid off, fired, downsized, rightsized, or re-engineered out of a job?  Are you unemployed or anticipate that possibility?  President Reagan once observed "A recession is when your neighbor loses his or her job.  A depression is when you lose yours."

Successfully Unemployed hosted by Alan Sherwood MBA, President of Sherwood Consulting Service, provides a hope-filled and comprehensive approach to the job-search process from an author who has experienced it all. Sherwood offers a threefold perspective and experience that few, if any, other authors provide: 1) He lost his job as vice president of his state’s largest hospital. 2) He found a more fulfilling job by following the guidelines he shares in his book. 3) He later created a dream job by starting a consulting firm, also by following the principles he outlines in his show and book.

All dimensions of a job search—physical tasks, mental attitude, emotional health, and even one’s spiritual perspective—must be integrated in order for a person to be successfully unemployed. Being successfully unemployed provides a means to a faster and more fulfilling end. It is a state of mind based on faith as well as a series of proactive steps. The show teaches the suddenly unemployed how to turn what appears to be a tragedy into a personal and professional triumph. Though a difficult time, unemployment is nevertheless a divinely appointed opportunity.

We all want to be successful at our job.  The show will teach you how to be more successful at your search.  This will be done through guest interviews, questions from listeners, and inspirational thoughts that reflect each week's show content.  Interviews will be conducted with experts in the job search field, people who exemplify being Successfully Unemployed and with those who have recently lost their job.  Listeners will learn how to:
