    Re: This stinks I'm unemployed

    Hey, me too! My job is seasonal. What really bites is that I've been wiped out with a cold for 2 weeks (worst one I've ever had!!!)... I haven't even had the motivation to metal detect! (let alone work on the 147 projects I haven't finished)

    It's tough all over. I have been there too. Not now, but, I feel your collective pain. I hope you all find something soon or change lanes!! GL

    Hey Bob

    Been there done that - got the boot almost 6 years ago. Decided never to work for anyone again. Took what I love to do and made it my job (No, not detecting !)

    Don't pay as well, but I enjoy it, and when I get an @$$ - chewing from the boss, I don't take too seriously !

    Diggem'

    Yup. The end of a way of life. Too bad. It's a good way. Wagons forward! Yo!

    I think we've all been there a time or two- I know I sure have. Keep a stiff upper lip and look at it as an opportunity to better your position elsewhere. I sincerely hope you do better where you wind up!

    Re: This stinks I'm unemployed

    Looks like I just jumped into the same boat.

    My contracting manager called me last Friday to say that my last day at work will be Oct 20. The company that I have been supporting for the last 2 1/2 years is closing the location I am working at by the end of the year. So much for 26 years in the Information Technology industry. At least I have my other part time job. Fixing toilets, cleaning rain gutters, replacing broken tile, patching drywall, repairing decks - yada yada yada....

    I finally figured out why the picture on my company badge has a red background. It's kind of like wearing a red shirt on the original Star Trek series. You beam down with the landing party and Zap - You're expendable.

    All the jobs are going to India or Costa Rica.
    Can you say "No hable Farci"?
    When all the jobs go to other countries and we don't have any work for us, we stop buying everything. I can feel a rant coming on............. (biting my tongue now).

    No job.
    No money.
    No health insurance.
    No nothing.
    In debt up to my eyeballs.
    Insurance poor.
    Soon - no place to live.
    Now too poor to pay attention.

    'nuff said.

    Re: This stinks I'm unemployed

    Being unemployed sucks, I've been their (3 months) and couldn't land a decent job which paid anything. Finally, just when I give up hope, a job came through.

    Don't give up, some employers are actually still looking for older type men and women with good quality work ethics and decades of experience. On the other hand, some companies see the older person as a liability due to medical insurance.

    This may not help anyone but, who knows. If you're male you almost have to be a veteran but there are jobs all over. If nothing else, this will give you another site to browse while you're off. Good luck usajobs.gov

    Re: This stinks I'm unemployed

    depending on what it is you do, try monster or career builder, it stinks i know, been there once or seven times. Finally found a perm gig in IT and have managed to not scare HR into letting me go yet . you may want to consider changing states, something i have been trying to get my inlaws to do before the end up living under a bridge, they live in state 50 of the best states to find a job, while down here not 3 states over companys are just beggin for people, with my FIL skills no less. wouldn't be here a week i bet and he'd be employed again. not a day goes by that i don't get a call from someone looking to fill a position.

    Re: This stinks I'm unemployed

    I couldn't get out and goof off either. I'd see my wife off to work and start feeling all depressed, fortunately, this job opened up just in time. Hang in their, something will come along.

    Sorry to hear about that, but I think everyone's been in your shoes at one time or anohter.
