Got laid off January 15. Spent 2 weeks working on my resume, multiple cover letters. Till date had 2 live interviews, several phone interviews, and 1 scheduled for next week. I hope this nightmare ends and I’m back to work contributing to society again.

@Littlesis7
When I was in high school I was given advice by my English / literature teacher.

We’re always alone like a person manning a ship and we make contact with other people on other ships but neve really leaving our boats. The closest you’ll ever come is having sex with somebody, and when you’re done you’ll still be alone. Second advice I got was in my time working as a filing clerk. He tells me I see someone attractive, I don’t shy Away, I’m too old to be embarrassed and end up with nothing for doing nothing.

From both advice what I’m trying to say is, worse thing that could happen from putting yourself out there is nothing, but what the world has to offer. As far as boats and being alone, just means no one cAres whether you fail or not, and what others think of you is insignificant. So pick yourself up and conquer the world.

I agree with you...I am in a similar situation and it sucks to not have someplace to go everyday and contribute to society?! I feel so useless when I'm not working, it makes me feel like I'm not doing something right?! I feel like it has to do with my experience level, but other times, I'm not sure? It is so discouraging to interview and they like you and then they send you a "generic email" saying we regret to inform you but we decided to go with another candidate who skills & talents more closely matched our needs?! I feel like what is the point of going the extra mile to prepare if I'm not going to get the position? I'm really stressed because I have bills to pay and I'm worry that I may get behind which is what I don't want?! It just puts me in a bad place...I don't understand what I'm doing wrong , I feel like I've failed and it sucks?! I have always considered myself a winner and someone who wants nothing but to succeed, I'm really going through it....I really want things to change?! I just want ro make a decent living, so that I can pay my bills and feel comfortable doing it?! I want job security and stability more than anything...
