    It finally happened. I've been downsized. So maybe I should get out of the Automotive Industry and find something else. Anyone need someone to travel to far flung exotic places seeking out CPs all expenses paid? Probably not. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    So now I'm faced with a delema. Do I work on my resume or go out exploring the local fens. Resume...Fen...Resume...Fen.

    #### it I'm going out to explore a fen.

    Actually I'm not at all concerned, well maybe a little, I'm sure I will land on my feet. To quote my boss "You sure are taking this well."

    I'm off in search of Fens the job search starts Monday.

    Sorry to here that Glen. I know what it's like to be laid off. I've been doing electrical work for almost 11 years and up until the last 2 yrs I have never been more than a day without a job. The economy crashed, and now it's hard to even keep a job. Ever since I've moved ohio it seems that there are hardly any jobs at all.
    If you get the job (expenses paid) going to exotic places looking for cp's, let me know. I'll downsize myself and be your partner. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    If there's anything I can do for you let me know.

    Good luck to you in your job search, Glenn! Seems nowadays there's almost nobody who hasn't been downsized at least once. It's a pain but sometimes you end up being in better shape than you were before. So keep your chin up and be creative....good things will come to you [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    This is a great attitude to have. Whenever something bad happens to me i always try to remember that things could always be worse. Also, contrary to what the media would like us to think, the economy has gotten stronger and will continue to do so (my econ prof. told us this). So hopefully there will be fewer layoffs and more job openings! Anyhow good luck with the job search!! I'm sure you'll find something.

    Its happened to me too...in the height of the previous recession. It is NOT fun. I used up all the money I had trying to survive.

    Best of luck to you in your job search. I hope its not long til you find another job. In the meantime, enjoy those fens! What a great way to relax from the stress. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Best wishes!
