“From IBM to Unemployment…The Escape from ‘Uemploymentville’...22 True Stories….
Anne Emerick is a former
IBMer who spent a turbulent time in her self-named “Unemploymentville”. Anne is
a programmer by day, author by night. In
2013 like thousands of others, Anne was laid off from her corporate
position. Her subsequent job search
brought her two job offers that she accepted, only to have them rescinded just
days before she was supposed to start working. Interested in learning what
quirky, horrible, or inspiring things were happening to other people who were
out of work, Anne created “Unemploymentville.com”, an online community.
Anne’s New Book – “Escape from Unemploymentville: Twenty-Two True Stories”.
