Your situation really sucks. And firing you by phone? What a coward. That proves how wrong he thought the situation was in the first place. Good luck with a new job. Who knows? This could be the best thing that ever happened to you.

Good. Apply for all sorts of stuff and count on having to apply for 20-30 or more jobs to get one. Just suck it up and do it. It is a horrid time to be unemployed. Don't waste emotional energy on what happened..just devote yourself to finding something, including something part-time in the evenings that will allow you to interview in the day. If you have skills you can barter, have someone else fill out the applications for you from your resume..could be a sister, friend, whatever..and you could fix their car or whatever. It takes a mental kind of energy to apply for jobs and if it can be parceled out to someone else, great. They can do it without any cycle of getting their hopes up etc....but do it regardless. Do you want to say what your skills are? Is there an area you want to explor, like solar energy say, or nursing or teaching? Especiall

I can't speak for all community colleges. But ours is relatively inexpensive. And until the Republicans find it all and kill it, there is still some financial aid available.

I echo what mg said about 'going back." I work at a community college. And we have a steady stream of re-trainers of all ages. (It is never too late!) It is encouraging to hear that many of them do reenter the work force, and often in a better state than they left it.

Here in the UK Cameron and Osborne are planning a bonfire of employee rights. It might be the same in Canada now. At the end of the day the capitalists will sell the workers down the river.

Good luck and stay strong.

Jason, I was let go after almost 10 years from a printing establishment I used to work for. They were fiscally conservative and needed to put on a full time outside salesperson, so some salary (preferably one of the higher ones) needed to go away. One of the owners could sort of do what I was doing. Well, he, sure as hell, wasn't going anywhere! I was totally blindsided. Stunned. At least they were honest about why they were letting me go, though. They even tried to line up another job for me as marketing director for one of their clients. (Not the best of ideas, since I had worked with four of their marketing directors in the previous six years...)

In retrospect, it was probably good for me. It gained me a lot more useful experience. Financially, though, it mostly sucked.

Now I'm in a completely different field, and that's also a good move, I guess, mostly because graphic design, prepress and editorial jobs have pretty much dried up. However I'm making half of what I used to. But it's reasonably secure and more or less steady.

Four more years until I dare to collect social security...

Hang in there, Jason. There are other jobs in retail available, if that's what you're looking for.

Totally bites. I haven't had a full-time job other than temp positions since getting laid off in 2002... but I am an adjunct and a sub, so I get to do things, and I make enough to live on. It'll be OK, although...

J-boy, so sorry to hear.   Change can be good, though. Remind yourself that you have much to offer and that some new place will be fortunate to have you. Hang on to your hope. Something will come.

In the meantime, now that you have some free time on your hands, I bet there are a lot of folks out there who could use your help in some way. Find 'em, and you'll both be better for it. Wishing you all the best ~

Happened to me once, mate. Two weeks later they phoned and asked me to come back. I had a better job by then and took delight in gently refusing. Knew they would, I'd worked with the young fellow before, and he was a total wan**r.

I refused gently because it never does to burn bridges too thoroughly. You may need a reference at some time.

Good luck.

There will be something better and, like jeff said, I hope the federal extension is available to him.

My son went over a year trying to find a new job after moving. I can't remember how many resumes he sent out and how many interviews he had, but, last month, finally, he found a really great job with a very good company. It took perseverance and some very frugal living, plus some personal growth, big time, but he did it.

Not saying that's the case for you, but just to encourage you that things can and will turn around. There's got to be something better out there for you!:-)

And, how about those Mad Men? I lost track!*bg*

ATB,

kat

J-boy got let go today. The son of one of the owners of the establishment that he worked for needs a summer job. J's immediate supervisor called him here at home and told him all the reasons he was ostensibly fired for, but eventually told him the real reason.

But anyway, he could use some cheering up.
