- Wedding: November 2014
I have a few issues going on in life right now and need some help/guidence as to how to handle them or what you would do in my situations.
I was laid off at the beginning of April. I have been a several interviews and 2nd interviews and have ZERO contact as to an update what the status is on the positions. One email said. “Thank you for the update on your job prospects. I beleive we are on the same time frame (decision next week when I return from Dallas) that we spoke about at your last interview”
Last week was the week they were supposed to make a decision and now its Wednesday. Should I follow up? or continue to wait.
Another interview I went on led to a job shadowing that last Wednesday. They said they would meet (HR and 2 other people) and discuss. I have not heard back from them either. It has now been a week. Do I follow up with them also even though the ball is in their court?????
The thing that is hurting me right now is that I left a job after 1 year in 2013 and sadly I was laid off from the job I left it for so my resume looks like I had 2 jobs in 2 years making me a job hopper. I had no control over the lay off but the employers see it in a bad way……..
I have another interview today with another office. Is there anything I should do differently?
Problem # 2
Since being laid off we have been living off of 1 income but that will not be able to support both of us. In the time frame of me being laid off our Mortgage went up $160 becuase of taxes. We had a water leak from the attic that ruined an entire closet and celing of the bedroom below it and the floors in that room and it leaked into the living room below that room. So we are having to people come out this week to give estimates. I have a feeling it might be in the 2k range to repair everything. We are now in a stressed out position because the money in savings is for the wedding which is November 1st of this year. We are debating to postpone the wedding since we have issues that need to be taken care of right away and the fact that I am still unemployed is not helping at all.
Woudl you postpone the wedding?? What should I do?? I feel like my whole world is falling a part piece by piece. Its one bad thing after another these last two months.
