The recession hit just as I was about to graduate from college.
Already having chosen to dedicate my life to an unstable career (in writing and entertainment), I was unprepared for my road to employment to get even tougher.
Now that we are a couple of years in that economic doldrums and facing what economists are calling a double-dip recession, I’ve often thought about how differently my life may have turned out had I graduated in 2000 or even 2020. Would I be working in some shiny corporate high-rise? Would I be living on my own? Would I be on my way to put a down payment on a new car? I wonder how the recession may have affected other Asian Americans no matter where they are in their personal and professional life.
