After being laid off in 1994, Susan P. Joyce began studying, writing, teaching, and speaking about the field of online job search with a focus on smart and effective job search techniques, building on her experience in human resources, information technology, and military intelligence.
For many years, Susan and Job-Hunt.org were honored to be mentioned, quoted, and recommended by the late Richard N. Bolles, in many editions of the classic career and job search "bible" -- What Color Is Your Parachute? Dick included Susan and Job-Hunt in 15 of the annual editions of Parachute.
Affiliated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School of Management from 2011 through 2016, Susan held Visiting Scholar appointments with the Sloan School for 3 of those years. The research at MIT was focused on long-term unemployment.
Since 1998, Susan has been Job-Hunt's chief writer and editor (a partial list of articles written by Susan P. Joyce), publisher, editor, and webmaster. Job-Hunt is one of the top employment portals on the Web, described by Reader's Digest as "vacuum-packed with solid advice."
Susan has been quoted in hundreds of articles, books, and websites including TIME, FORTUNE, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and many others.

Counting her Honorable Discharge from the United States Marine Corps where she served as an intelligence officer, Susan is a two-time layoff "graduate." She was also one of tens of thousands of employees laid off in 1994 by Digital Equipment Corporation, number 28 on the Fortune 500 company at that time, which completely disappeared by 1998. Susan's work on Job-Hunt resulted from those two experiences.
Based on her pre-Digital experience working in Harvard University's Personnel Office and in a Boston compensation consulting company as well as her numerous industry contacts, Susan has written and spoken extensively on the subject of online job search and was a pioneer in this relatively new field. Susan also teaches employers and recruiters how to recruit employees online.
