  • OT: Chalk up another for the unemployment line....

    Yeah- I got the axe today. An unforseen misunderstood circumstance that led to an early termination. I don't find anything I did immensely wrong, but the company saw it differently. :eek:

    No warnings or no suspensions in 8 years, just a pink slip.

    I and my wife are sitting alright at the moment, but I will be looking for a job like a lot of the USA populus, and collecting unemployment whilst looking.

    That said- I will not slow down on speakers, as I have plenty to build in-house. I also will not miss Dayton- I pretty much guarantee that! :D

    Wish me luck, and I hope there are opportunities abound for the others here that are currently between jobs.

    I like to think this is a blessing in disguise....
    Life goes on!
    Wolf

    PS- I will most likely be clearing out a lot of the lesser drivers in my inventory, so stay tuned!

    Sorry. Sounds like you are taking it well though. Good for you, and likely good for your wife to see that you are not phased.

    Get a good one!

          Ouch. Seems like this can happen to anyone at anytime. And as you have noted, you have lots of company. But I'm quite sure you will bounce back quickly. Best wishes.

                This will only open more opportunities that will show case your talents. You have too much drive and ability for anything too keep you down for long.
                Take a little earned time off. After that I know you will walk into somewhere that will pay you what you are worth.

                    Sorry to hear that Wolf.
                    On a side note I am going to quit my job and go back to school this fall. I can't take the presure any more. The big corporation I work for just keeps on squeezing.

                          Good luck on the search for employment and enjoy your time off. I'm sure it won't last.

                              Best of luck Wolf. I too was given the layoff slip last month, but I have a nice severance to go with it along with some internal possibilities for another position.

                              And now that the census is done, there will be another 600,000 added to the unemployment roles.
