UPDATE: Losing Middle Ground: Defining what it means to live in today’s ‘middle class’

Congratulations to Marina Mathews, the laid-off communications professional featured in my article “Losing Middle Ground: Defining what it means to live in today’s ‘middle class.'”

After seven months of shopping resumes, networking, and combing the web, Mathews has finally landed a job! She’s the new Marketing Communications Manager for a public relations software management company.

“A telling moment for me is when I realized that all but one of my pool of five references is out of work,” she says. “My new job opportunity could not have come at a better time since I was on my last unemployment check.
