Do you remember the day U were let go? How long has it been? How were you informed that "today is your last day?" We all experienced a certain amount of stress in our last jobs. Did we see the ball coming? Did we know that month, week or a few days before that possibly we would be let go? Then, after we lost our jobs, did we feel some weight lifted off of our shoulders (that initial shock). Weeks turn into months....time moves on....we're into another season, and then another season....and now the end of this year.... How are you feeling? And if and when we resume work again (please let it be soon!), do you think there will be another adjustment to stress again? We're dealing with stress now, but it's a different form of stress, we don't know where our paychecks will be coming from (down the road)...so, if we resume work, will our bodies be able to adjust to that on the job performance anxiety where we're scrutinized again.... I wonder how hiring mgrs work with a newly hired individual who was out of work for a long time....maybe they have a family mbr, friend, or neighbor who was out of work and can empathize.... Aside from the Internet, how have you been approaching your networking opportunities? Blessings to all of you this holiday season.

Blind sided Hi. Yes, I remember. I/we knew that our department was being off-shored and eventually, our jobs would go away. What none of us realized was how swiftly this would take place. I remember sitting in a very ambiguous meeting. Somebody flew in from another office and presented us with the most-confusing material... No one really knew what was going on. I hit a certain point and questioned it. When I looked up, everyone was looking at me: I had just revealed to all that our data center is being relegated to nadda ...very soon. I really tripped out. A couple of my friends lost their jobs in early '07 and I had alreay heard plenty of horror stories. My boss told me as soon as possy that my last day would be 2 weeks out. I don't think I'll feel any additional stress going forward. I'm numb - LOL. No advice for anyone on effective networking. (:0|

    Ok - THAT sucks. My boss was a nice guy - told us all as soon as he knew. Whaddup with yours? Sounds like a worm. I was blown away because right before I was laid off, my place had been broken into (again) and everything was stolen (laptop, cell phone, name it). Not that I'm feeling 100% now but, I have a better perspective. Or, maybe I'm just numb. (:0|

    Yes, but even weirder was that ... ... two months prior I was given a 7K bonus + a 3% merit increase (my first increase in 3 years). Hell, I thought things were looking up. I should have taken the hint when I found out our manager had transferred back to India in mid 2008. He made a bundle here and now he lives like a king back in the land of 1,000,000 gods / cows. Sorry to hear about the break-in. The timing sure sucked ... but anytime for theft is a bad time.

    You had just gotten a raise? That is really strange. You're story reminds me of the pix of management I have for airlines, Big 3 auto and some financial co's. No gradual plan to reduce operations, no back-out plan. So, you get a raise, everything is grand then one fine day - pack up your stuff and don't let the door hit you on your way out!

    not really I've been laid off 5 times by 3 different companies over the last 2 years (as a painter), and they usually wait until AFTER there is no more work to let you hear those infamous words--don't us, we'll you! You almost kinda/sorta but not really get used to it if that makes any sense.....

    ^^^Kinda the same for carpentry^^^ Luckily our boss was really straight forward about everything. We knew we were going to run out of work eventually. Our last month was "I'll as soon as I know" As far as networking goes, with no one building everyone in our network is in the same boat.

    Hi WB, I wish I knew where I read this Hi. I came across something that said that construction, including home construction, is expected to improve over the months ahead. Do you know anything about this?

    Hi FD ! I've heard something to that effect. Not so much construction but housing in general. I hope they're right. If they can start selling some of the empty existing homes I think it would at least help the remodel market. My oldest son and his fiance are looking for a house so maybe there's something to this other than speculation and rumor.

    My daughter and I were commenting earlier this week when driving around our city on the enormous amount of new commercial construction that is still going on here........ It's like they don't even NOTICE that the commercial buildings and strip malls etc already built are at least half vacant.... Or maybe they do and it's a tax loss for them..... who the hell knows, but it IS disheartening to see all these empty places where businesses (that would employ us) should be

    Same thing here opalie. We have a large industrial park not far from our house but it's nothing but warehousing & logistics. It seems like all of the mom and pop places are gone or going soon. I saw a commercial the other day about goods made in china "Made in china...made for the world" It's really sad is'nt it ?

    job market newbie keeps blathering on about how USA is the largest manufacturer in the world - yet I wonder wtf we DO make here anymore - I don't SEE a whole lot of Made in USA labels when I'm out and about It's our own fault of course - goods made in China and Japan were once considered a shoddy substitute for stuff made here - then it changed to where we accepted lesser quality in exchange for cheap prices...... and there went our jobs. China can thank the now vanishing USA middleclass for the rise of THEIR middleclass.

    Actually, that's true The US is still the largest manufacturing economy in the world. But the Chinese are right on our heels.

    so what all do we make here? As I said - most stuff I see in the stores doesn't have a Made in USA label Are there any BIG manufacturers anymore? Not talking about the millions of mom and pop companies that yes still make stuff here (if you're into hand made boots and furniture etc), I mean HUGE mainstream companies..... Where are the steel mills etc ?

    China...they don't make cars, right? Where are most of their cars from? HUH! I wonder if you can ship a car to someplace like Hong Kong, turn around and sell it for twice the price to a person? Have you heard of others doing this?

    Many things From aircraft to locomotives to scientific instruments and everything in between. People think we make nothing, because all they see are the typical consumer goods, of which very few are made here.

    We manufacture jobs overseas. I never have liked Walmart or Target but when they put all of the local places out of business we will have no choice I guess. I had to buy my youngest son a new winter coat today so I took him to J.C.Penny. He found one he liked. Arizona Jean Co. "Made in China" Go figure.

    UR right. The USA is the biggest mfr but all the manufacturing is done elsewhere. You can find a list of the largest mfr's in the world on the www. That's why I joke about US company's being US in title only. Sort of like incorporations through the state of DE. You've heard of DHC's. Ah --- what's to come of us? I think something drastic is going to happen in the next year or two.

    Wish I had your skill set Hi. (Sigh) I wish I didn't have to fall back on my dream being in a cubicle I can my own. When work picks up for you, you'll be ready to go! My skills are becoming antiquated and even if I get a job, it will eventually be off shored (again). I'm not sure if you saw this, here's a slice of my little world of trying to get a job with corporate America... (BTW, I posted this same thing this AM...I just think its funny) Cheers ;0)

    I saw that this AM when you posted it.:) I laughed so hard I had the dog barking at me. I wish the boss would with another days work even. I was wound up for 3 days after the last day I worked. Before things slowed down I had people ing all the time wanting work done. Now no one has the money to do the work.

    Kind of ironic. When I would have a bad day I would wonder if I should have chose a different profession. Now after being out of work 15 months I finally find a group to comisurate with and most of them are in the fields I contemplated going into.
