Resume of Robert K. Vaughn

Dear Friends,

As you know, my hubby has been out of work for nearly 3 years now.  Well, we've hit the wall and we're about to lose our home - unfinished kitchen cabinets and all.  I am asking for your prayers and if possible, to be proactive in helping my sweetie find a job. Your action may mean the difference in my family's life and future.


How can you help?  Well, I've posted his resume HERE.  The only hope we have of saving our home and preventing a foreclosure and short-sale in the next month or so is for him to find a job.  Short of posting his resume with a sky writer, or standing on street corners with a huge sign, this is our only hope.  I have, in fact, written President Obama, Governor Perdue, and Congresswoman Myrick.  As usual, we will probably get a picture in the mail with their stamped signature on it thanking us for our support.  What about their support dammit!!!  Doesn't anyone care about families like us anymore?!!


Bob has been in Information Technology for about 27 years.  His experience is exceptional, as is his integrity.  PLEASE!  If you know anyone at an Executive level, Hiring Manager level, Recruiter, or Human Resources for a company such as (and for example) - Hewlett Packard, Apple, Microsoft, Bell Atlantic Internet Solutions, Cambridge Technology Partners (these are examples), I ask you humbly to pass on my husband's resume.  I cannot stress the urgency enough.  I swear this stress is going to give me a heart attack.  Bob is holding us all together from falling over this cliff with one hand, and folks, it's getting awfully windy and slippery up here.


Take a look at this smiling face - my Big Bear - and know that you are doing something for a good man with a heart of gold.  A man of integrity and respectability.  A strong, upstanding husband, father, son, son-in-law, and friend.  A man who would do anything and sacrifice much to help others in need.  A man who goes every Thursday night to our church to head up the "At Work Ministry" for members of our community, who like him are out of work.  That is just the kind of man he is.  He doesn't deserve this.  None of us deserve to lose it all because of the greed and irresponsibility of others. 


This is our home.  Please help us keep our family secure and safe and free from worry so that our children can at least finish school here successfully and without worry. 

Sorry for this post.  Just know that I have not been writing as much here because of the stress.  I feel sometimes like I am having a panic attack and I'm on the verge of falling apart or having a heart attack.  Stress does terrible things to your head and your health.  As hard as I try, I feel myself wearing thin.

Thank you.  Please forgive me.  I, too, have applied for well over 100 jobs myself to no avail, receiving rejection after rejection.  I suppose that nobody wants a 52 y/o woman who has been out of the workforce for 20 years.  I don't know what else to do.  I am selling my artwork and doing my best for my family.  So is Bob.  I love him so much.  I hate to see him so stressed over all of this with so much responsibility weighing on his shoulders.  If you can pass his resume on to someone who might be the one connection he needs, and/or post this to your Facebook page, God knows how much I humbly appreciate your kindness - from the bottom of my heart I cannot thank you enough for at least trying to lend a hand before we lose everything.


One More Thing - IMPORTANT: Bob will work ANYWHERE (accept maybe in some dark field in Africa, although he has been there too).  This DOES NOT have to be a local job here in Charlotte, NC.  It can be ANYWHERE.  His goal is simply to get a job.  In our 20 years together, Bob has worked in Boston, New York, Atlanta, and more, traveling the world as well, while I've been home raising our family.  He is fine with that.  He just needs a job so that at the very least we can get out of this quicksand and get our children through school (another 7 years).  Then, I don't care, I'll pitch a tent somewhere, anywhere, with my Big Bear.  I just don't want to disrupt our children's education because of this - there lives are more important to me than my own.  It kills me that they are stressed and frightened too about this.  They should be enjoying every minute of their life.

Thanks for listening, and YES, Bob will work ANYWHERE!!


Gratefully -
