Depleted savings, selling the house
Depleted savings, selling the house
Stephanie Carlino
Age: 61
Hometown: Wantagh, N.Y.
Job wanted: Non profit

I've been out of a job since last March. I was constantly looking for something else and there's nothing. There are no jobs and companies are consolidating jobs and it's tough.

I had really been pounding the pavement. Looking for a job became my job. It's very demoralizing. I just hit the wall in November. Now I'm volunteering and spending a lot of time at home, cleaning and preparing for the inevitable sale. I'm going to sell my house as opposed to lose it to foreclosure because that's the only option I have. I have depleted my savings.

I'm taking a course in project management at Hofstra University and hoping that a change in career with credentials could lead to something, but you don't know.
