    I’m 63. I’ve gone through a lot in the last 15 years – a heartbreaking divorce after 24 years of marriage, loss of my home, the death of my oldest son, having to move away from outside of DC where I lived for 30 years, moving to an alien place, and havig the inabilitiy to find a job to support myself due to (I’m sure) age discrimination. I am a former school counselor who couldn’t get back into the field in my 50s. So, I went back to school these past two years and graduate this month with a second masters degree in counseling in order to become a licensed mental health therapist. My focus has been on women’s issues, especially life transitions. I am also a freelance writer. Have any ideas for a job for me?

      Congrats on your upcoming graduation! For your job search, I’d suggest looking into some of the organizations that presented at last year’s UNIFEM/USNC conference – you can find my posts on the conference here: https://hwhtw.wordpress.com/tag/unifemusnc/. You might also consider attending this year’s conference (now called UN Women/USNC) – it’s a great networking opportunity, and it’s coming up in June. Good luck!
