As from today, I am officially unemployed. And quite frankly, that scares the shit out of me.

I understand all too well the way you feel, but I am sure you will
be working before you know it.

It's been 20 years since I was last between jobs. I'm so not used to it anymore. I'm not worried that I won't find another job, but I'm worried that I might take the wrong one just so as I can say I'm in work...

I think you will be okay, a better job is out there waiting for you.
With your experience and expertise I am really confident that the
type of job you are most suited for and best for you will be there.
Consider the few days of not working as a mini vacation. You know
what they say about positive thinking. I will keep my fingers crossed and will also pray that you get the right job for you as soon as

Thank you so very much. And i wish I could treat this time as a mini-vacation, but it seems as if I'm far busier now that I'm out of work than I used to be when I was still at hp. The Job Centre, the DSS and the outplacement agency between them keep me tied up with appointments and meetings; and also, I'm trying to move my father into a new care home. Today for instance, I've actually signed him up with a new doctor's practice, and now I've got to make sure his insurance company knows of the changes.

::hugs you:: I hope something comes along very soon indeed.

But it's got to be the right kind of something, and I'm not sure the Job Centre and I are in the same wavelength.

I have every bit of confidence in you. *hugs* Though I can certainly understand being scared.

Thanks. It's a really strange feeling: on the one hand, I'm so relieved to be out of a job I hated, while on the other, I'm paralysed by fear of the unknown now that I'm actually out of a job. But the looking for work while in work-thing wasn't working for me, so hopefully now that I can devote more time to the search, I'll have more luck of finding something I really like.

It's scary, but I'm excited for you. Go out and conquer the world, baby.

Jul. 1st, 2008 10:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the vote of confidence!
Jul. 1st, 2008 09:21 pm (UTC)
*pets you* I know you'll find something, and it'll be so much better than the last one. And I will be praying for you.
Jul. 1st, 2008 10:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you. Your prayers are gratefully received.
Jul. 2nd, 2008 03:16 am (UTC)
Yeah. That would pretty well scare the shit out of me too.
Jul. 2nd, 2008 03:17 am (UTC)
That being said. I'm sure you will be fine and find something better. You have so much potential...but I've been between jobs and it is scary. [hugs you]
Jul. 2nd, 2008 10:40 am (UTC)
Thanks. It helps knowing there's people rooting for me ;-)
Jul. 2nd, 2008 12:12 pm (UTC)
The fear factor is the best thing to push you into action. I'm sure your going to the land a much better job for yourself!!!

Thank you. Deep down, I know it will all turn out for the best...it's just the getting there that has me worried at the moment.

I have every confidence in your capability and hire-ability. If it's any help, I will pray and send you all the positive energy I can muster.

**hugs, too**
