That’s awful!! Your boss really should have told you! I guess it must have been hard for him to discuss though, being his own business.

I’m glad your fiance is supportive of you and will help take care of you until something new comes along – I hope you find something soon 🙂

I am so sorry.  I know this is going to sound trite, but there is still so much to be thankful for.  You have people who love you and are safe and a fi who is willing to take care of you.  No, it’s not perfect but it is something wonderful.  I hope things turn around soon.

Are you able to file for unemployment? There may be financial aid options for you when it comes to going back to school as well, if you’re interested in that. Don’t be so hard on yourself.. it stinks that you lost your job, but you didn’t do anything wrong.

For finding a job – newspaper, online job search engines (indeed, simplyhired), temp-agencies, your local unemployment office may be able to help, too. It’s such a good thing that your Fiance is there for you.

@DancingDiva:  that really sucks im sorry. though im sure it must be even worse for the owner, to know his business has failed

pep talk time – youre going to find a kick ass job that you love and you need to see this an an opportunity. i know you dont want  to rely on your fi, i really do – im like you as i dont want that either…i cant legally work here in mexico yet and i want to be busy and make my own money.but itll be temporary

dont be down and disheartened…great things await 🙂

Volunteering is a great way to spend time, meet people, gain skills, and feel useful!

Keep your chin up, many many people in this economy have lost jobs. It’s terrible that you had no notice. But I have been in the other boat (many months notice) and it is equally hard to keep working at a job you know you will lose. So in some sense, you are lucky they cut you free and you can move on.

Just keep looking- indeed.com is a great resource, mention to everyone that you are looking (you never know who has a cousin whose company is hiring, etc) and keep in mind its nothing to do with you, not your fault, just the economy. You will find a better job!
