Business has been down since the depression started.   Some cuts in the company were already made.  Knew there was a chance down the road.  Company is in the middle of partial selling ownership to some new partners.   My guess is that they are trimming down the under performing branches to look good to the new buyers.  It was my day off today.  My boss called me to inform.   Tommorrow I find out the details.   About 100 of us are out.   

I have enough in savings to last 6-9 months.   Been working for 7 years straight.   Before that I was out of work for a 1 & 1/2 years don't want to repeat that again.

That sucks.

Best thing to do is to dust yourself (now yourselves) off, and get back on the horse.

Well I got some free time now.   Daily job search takes only between 1-3 hours.   1 hour if there's nothing online and 3 I have to apply to several jobs.   Interviews only take up 2 hours out of my day.   This means I got a little spare time to game a bit.  I'd rather be working.

The JJ has a job?

YES

Well actually kinda.  The JJ went to an interview for one job.  The interview process created doubts about the job.  The JJ then recieved an offer not for the job but a Temp job offered by the same people.   If your on unemployement you have to accept all offers.   For one month JJ will be working.

After that Month the JJ is thinking about trying to move to LA for a month or two try looking for work there.   Plan is to maybe make the permiment move back to LA.   If anyone needs a room mate.

I wish you luck JJ.  I know the job market has sucked for a long time.  My fiancee is finally working again.  I have family in LA, so if you don't mind me asking, what line of work are you experienced in?  I can ask my family what they know of the job market for that field locally.

Went to college to work in the communications, marketing and public relations industry.   Actual working experience post college has been in the glamorous world retail/reception and I was making more than junior managment.
