In a story at the Huffington Post, Jennifer West talks about losing her job as an editor and a new journey she is taking. West’s story is similar to other journalists who have become unemployed. Although she has opted to go back to school, she says she’s out of the news business for good and will look at obtaining her degree is special education.

What about freelancing?

I refuse to work in journalism ever again. It’s turned its back on me.

But I called you.

But you’re not going to hire me.

That’s true.

I’m 41. Trying to get back into journalism — I was booted out and I’m looking in and I’m seeing 26-year-olds and 25-year-olds interviewing for the jobs I want. They ask everywhere for one to three years experience. What happened to 20? Nobody wants that.

There is a lot of truth in her words. Believe me.
