And Now I Join the Ranks....

of the unemployed. Yes, 300,000 other Americans in the month of January 2009 were laid off with corporate cuts. Today, I added myself to the ever growing body count. Things are not financially set as the severance pay was minimal. Sucks...but like my header states, Reality sucks and Life Goes On.

Ya know...I was in the same boat 2003. This time I won't wait for that "perfect" job. I've slung cowshit in my day, even some bullshit here too. But seriously, I'll take what I can get as long as its more than unemployment. This is the 4-5 time in my working career I've been without a job. Wonder if I can start my own business as a "I was laid-off consultant"?

So if anyone is competent of writing kick ass resume, hit me up in comments or email. I've got one but naturally its never good enough.

Until then...maybe I should write more!

I don't claim to be great but I help thousands (ok, hundreds) rewrite resumes. Ship it over...

Sorry to hear that! It's happening to too many lately. My husband lost his a couple of months ago. Luckily *crossing fingers* I still have mine.
