I hear you.  It’s been 1.5 years for me now, with just a part-time job.  I’m desperately happy that a potential called a least one reference yesterday, hoping (yet again) this will be the one.  Hang in there.  PM if you need to vent or want support.  Some days are bad, some are good. 

And my personal top annoyance is writing the thank you letter!

I’m so sorry.  Fingers crossed you won’t be laid off, and if so, that something better will come along.  I agree.  Job searching is the WORST.

I feel bad for you.  Is it bad that I have been waiting for my company to lay us off?  We have been going down for a while now.  I have been working for 5 years with them and am really really not liking it at all.  I feel like I want a little break to rejuvenate which I really really really need.  I know you probably think I don’t appreciate what I have.  Sorry.

I’m sorry. That’s an awful thing to have to think about. As others have said, I hope it doesn’t happen but sending good thoughts…

๐Ÿ™ Sorry dear. You’ll find something else if they do decide to lay you off. It might take some time and some sacrifices…but you’ll get there! My mom just got layed off last year…her company closed. She was there for over 15 years and had a top management position! She recently found another job making decent money. ๐Ÿ™‚ It just takes perseverence…and a lot of it!

Hey, if the COO himself told you personally that he will try to keep you on, at least you have a chance. And even if he does have to lay you off, the fact that he was trying to keep you on is good – you can use him as a reference for your next job or he would probably be willing to hire you back once he can. At least it’s not so dismal!

Sprinkles=Good:) Job-hunting=Big Drag:( I know what you mean about those cover letters, it’s sooo exhausting trying to figure out what to say and tailoring each one to each position. Blech. So I hope you are wrong (COO is on your side at least) but prepare for the worst and hope for the best and keep Sprinkles on speed dial:)

I think I know who you might work for. Is the contract you’re talking about a big ICE contract, about $40 mil? If so, my husband works for the same company (Northern VA office) and came home last night telling me they’re laying off about 1500 people in California, Texas and some other state, maybe Georgia. It sucks. ๐Ÿ™

Ugg I’m so sorry! There are some major economic problems going on on this country and I’ve never had so much trouble finding a job!

I gave up, sold my car, and just stay at home. I save more money than taking a crap job , that only pays for gas and car insurance . I know thats not an option for many but just to put into perspective for you how crazy things are for everyone!

I hate my resume too ๐Ÿ™‚ My degree and experience seem useless. and its frusterating being rejected.

I’m hoping for the best! Perhaps you won’t get laid off!
