Michael Froehls, PhD, a former successful global executive, turns conventional wisdom upside down - he suggests that you should overcome your reflex to immediately look for the next job after losing one. Don't miss out on your chance to do things you never had time for while being employed. Why not pursue a few activities that really matter to you before continuing your hard 30- to 40-year-long working life? What not realize some lifelong travel dreams, improve your health, invest in family and friends, fire up your love life, acquire new job skills, or check out a different location for a better career?
In this book, you will find practical advice on how to take advantage of your opportunity without regret. Written from a business perspective with philosophical underpinnings, enriched by personal stories and serious thought-provoking questions, The Gift of Job Loss will help you:
* Understand the "Job Seeker Industrial Complex" and its influence on you
* Revitalize your life via 7 no-regret and up to 8 optional activities
* Identify personal and professional strategic options hitherto unavailable
* Optimize your "game of life" - living now vs. living in the future
* Analyze the implications of an economic recession vs. boom for your time off
* Plan your own step-by-step course of action - whether you are about to be let go, just got laid-off, or are still "safely" employed
After losing his corporate job, Michael decided to sidestep the recession by doing what he advocates in this book. Headhunters, former colleagues, and friends called his move and timing a very smart decision - though few would dare because of convention and apprehension. If you face job loss, reading this book should help you overcome any despair and make you see your situation in a much more positive light.

The Gift of Job Loss is a smart read for any mid-level employee or executive in transition...it provides a refreshing, reassuring, and well-researched assessment of how to approach and best utilize the downtime before one's next career commitment. Michael's tremendous professional track record with the most demanding companies lends wisdom and credibility to his career recommendations. This executive perspective, combined with the fun, warm, and inspiring personal stories and achievements that he shares from his own "time off," should provide a significant boost to the mental state of candidates when they need it most. As an executive search consultant, I firmly believe that there are tips in this book that will a) increase a reader's chances of receiving a job offer, b) improve the terms of the offer(s), and c) make the transition period rewarding and exciting enough to discuss for a lifetime..

Fiction. Winner of the 6th Starcherone Prize for Innovative Fiction, chosen by Ben Marcus. In this darkly hilarious debut collection, misfit women and girls in every strata of society are investigated through various ill-fated jobs. One is the main course of dinner, another the porn star contracted to copulate in space for a reality TV show. They become futuristic ant farms, get knocked up by the star high school quarterback and have secret abortions, use parakeets to reverse amputations, make love to garden gnomes, go into air conditioning ducts to confront their mother's ghost, and do so in settings that range from Hell to the local white-supremacist bowling alley. These fine stories, anthropologically thorough in their view of the contemporary person, illuminate how people hide behind their pursuits, concealing what matters most to them while striving, and usually failing, to be loved - Ben Marcus..
