About the Author of Job Searching Lessons Learned

Hello, I’m Rose Waltz and thanks for taking time to read my job searching lessons learned blog.  You are probably wondering why I’m writing a blog about job searching.   It is pretty simple really.  As a Retirement Benefits Professional, I’m concerned that the high unemployment rate is causing many people to deplete their retirement savings just to keep a roof over their heads.  This is unacceptable and my mission is to do everything within my power to change this. 

I have a vested personal interest in this project because I was unemployed for 6 months in 2009.  Luckily my former employer hired an outplacement consulting firm to assist me with my job search.  I’ve had access to many job search resources that have helped me with resume writing, interviewing and the job search process.  I have also read books, attended seminars, workshops and job networking groups.   I just want to share this information with other job searchers in the hopes that it might expedite landing a new position.

I have a B.A. Degree in Journalism and Mass Communications with an emphasis on Public Relations and Advertising from Kansas State University.  I also have a J.D. Degree from Washburn University School of Law.  I have extensive experience working with qualified defined contribution retirement plans such as 401(k), profit sharing and money purchase pension plans.  

My experience includes working for three Retirement Plan Service Providers.   Please visit my personal website which contains praise from some of my clients:  http://www.rosewaltz.com.   My linkedin profile contains recommendations from co-workers and managers: http://www.linkedin.com/in/rosewaltz.   I’m passionate about retirement plans and my major strength is working with retirement plan documents.  I enjoy plan design and know how to design a retirement plan to maximize plan participation.  As an attorney, I understand the importance of  mitigating  risk.

Best of luck in your job search and please feel free to share comments on my blog with any suggestions you may have for other job searchers.
