Counting her Honorable Discharge from the United States Marine Corps, Susan is a two-time layoff "graduate." She was also one of thousands of people 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.
