Former Tech VP rebounds from job loss with nationwide job service

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - As Lubbock's unemployment rate rebounds from a record high this year, one man makes himself an example of how to recover. Former TTU Associate Vice President J. Robert Shindell recently launched http://ilostmyjob.com/. Shindell resigned under pressure from Texas Tech last year. But, now he's turned his own situation into a brand new nationwide service.

Shindell offers advice on the site for job seekers. On a website video he says, "For example, most companies value individuals who can provide excellent customer service.  Customer service skills carry over into just about any field or line of work."

Tuesday the website launched a new feature called career doctor. The website offers free videos and expert articles with the option to become a member for premium content.
