I”m so sorry!  I’m sure that you will find something, especially after all that wonderful experience with your current job!  Everyone else was probably just as upset, some people can hide it better though.

I am so sorry. I know just how you feel because this also happened to me. I used to work for a major credit card company and they decided to close shop and move all of our jobs to India. This happened several years ago and I am still mad about it.

It will be okay. Just give it a little bit of time and consider what you want to do with the rest of your life. That is what I did. I found something that I am passionate about and turned it into a business. It is not easy, but you will get through this. Just be smart and when tough decisions come up, make a list of pros and cons for and against the decision. You will find your way 🙂

You will be ok! It must be really scary now but perhaps after the shock has worn off you can find the silver lining?

A chance for a change, a challenege, a chance to improve your interviewing skills and to add to your CV.

You have a wonderfully supportive Fiance behind you and the whole Hive. You. will. be. fine. Most likely, you’ll be better than fine. 🙂

I’m so sorry. I saw you reference this in a different thread earlier today. Hang in there. I hope everything works out for the best.

@Magdalena: Im sorry to hear that!!!! Thats one of the biggest problems with unemployment in this country is companies laying off American workers to offshore jobs to China/India and other places so they can “save” money. GREED is what is killing the economy. I hope you find another job somewhere else.

@Magdalena: I empathize with you.  My family’s company closed after 35 years in 2008.  This was when the job market was starting to go south.  While I sent in applications, and had some offers, I just didn’t want to do the same thing anymore.

I went back to school and it really transformed my vision of the future.  I am studying to become a college professor in communication and media. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but I feel so much more fulfilled in my career choice.

While it can be scary to lose the security of a job you’ve become accustomed to, it can also be very liberating.  This is the universe revealing an opportunity to explore new options.  It could be with a new company or in a new career. 

Is your alma mater in the same area?  If so, give their career services department a call.  Their services are usually available to graduating seniors and alumni.  They might be able to help you with some mock interviews to build your skills in that area.  While it is important to be yourself in interviews, there are key words and terms that HR people respond very well to.

All the best of luck!

Oh I hope you find something soon. I know exactly how you feel! Start early in sending out resumes like crazy.

Good Luck!

yikes that is awful.  I was very hurt and took it personally when the company I worked at since college went under and let everyone go.  I called Darling Husband and cried.  Even though it was a standard thing, I got unemployment then found a new good job quick, it was hard.

good luck!

Oh no, I’m so sorry this happened.  I’m glad your company  had the decency to tell you in advance though.  And hopefully the severance package is good.  I know it will take awhile to find something new but it’ll happen.  Try to stay positive.
