My Fiance was laid off about 1 1/2 years ago and has been working a contracted temp job ever since. This poor guy has been working so hard and gone on so many interviews. This week he called me to let me know he got a new job. It is in his field of study, it pays significantly better, is closer to our future home, and has great benefits. That is the best present he ever could have given me. I am so very proud of him!

@missbumblebee: Massive congratulations! I know how tough it can be when your other half isn’t in steady employment. Somehow I find it more stressful when Mr CL is applying for jobs than when I was! How soon does he start?

Congrats! That is great news, and I’m sure it will be a relief to be able to focus on wedding planning without having to worry about it!

Congratulations. My fiance was laid off 18 months ago as well. He is now working as a waiter. Meanwhile I’m a lawyer at a big NYC firm and he is embarrassed around my colleagues and friends, because his previously “similarly prestigious” <- I push paper, whatever, its not really prestigious, job no longer exists. I’m really hoping he can find something that makes him feel better soon, in time for our Sept. 1 wedding.

Yay! That is a HUGE accomplishment! Especially in today’s market where only half of college grads are employed full time, let alone in their fields. He should be extremely proud of himself.
