Eclectic Compass follows the adventures of two newbie vagabonders as they set out on their long-overdue walkabout around the world (or however far they get before running out of funds). Our intrepid adventurers have leveraged a “reduction in force” (read: layoff) into an opportunity to learn through travel. Oh yeah, and great timing and a work-from-home position don’t doesn’t hurt.
Charity is a Human Resources Manager with nearly 11 years of hands-on experience in a spectrum of organizations. She’s (temporarily?) trading in her Excell spreadsheets for a backpack and a pair of comfortable walking shoes. After the pink slip is final in June, she will be available for project-based HR consulting. She also makes a mean fried egg sandwich.
Maylene is a Business Systems Analyst (whatever that means) in the marketing group of a certain software giant, protecting the privacy of its customers. She is lucky enough to work remotely and will continue to do so in far-off locales unemployed. She’s a geek generalist. Her current guilty pleasure is Dancing with the Stars.
This blog, like life itself, is a work in progress. Thanks for your patience with our imperfections.
