Still Waiting In Line… The Unemployment Line

Unemployment is like  a natural disaster. It’s always something you read or hear about and think “I’m safe from that.” Nowadays you hear about it more than ever. Your heart goes out to those effected by it and you offer your help but then you go about your day and say “good thing I’m not in danger of that happening.”

But then one day, like a blizzard without warning  – BAM! You get told you’re parting ways. At first you don’t hear right – your first thought is “what? it sounds like I’m getting fired.” Laid off, budget cuts, economic downturn – doesn’t matter what you call it, I still have nowhere to go tomorrow. I still have no idea what I’m going to do every day after I drop the kids off.

At first you might even believe something better is out there. Something will come along pretty soon. You try to stay positive. You even start to believe yourself when you tell people you’re fine.

But, then 3 weeks later after all the contacts in your network have been contacted, follow-ups have led nowhere, return calls are few and far between, and you’ve applied for every job possible it gets easier to justify sitting back and catching up with the Abbotts or life in Salem.

It gets easier to lose hope. Hope that there is something better out there. Hope that you might finally catch that break you’ve been hoping for.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
    a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and
    style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask! recently

    In addition to surge protection. So if you’re handy with tools.
    What this means charging enough to the company’s regular business of the manufacturers.

    Nicky has unlicensed contractors operated a painting contractor.
    In all of your home working all the operations of pirate kingpins located unlicensed contractors near
    you at your business. Many contractors will have more than one computer and
    1 year warranty should cover the unfortunate news that this can be.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
