Working Again

Post by Guest on Wed Jun 22, 2011 10:48 pm

Just wanted to let those know who have been unemployed for a long time that once you start working again, it's like riding a bike. You never forget.

I was unemployed for two years and landed a job about 1 1/2 years ago. It was hard at first and seemed like I would never learn the job, but after three months, it was a piece of cake.

If I could find something after two years of being unemployed, anyone can! I had gained weight, was depressed, and felt like I'd never work again. My boyfriend thought I was going to end my life with the "crazy" talk I would make.

Oh, and I only had three different companies interview me in 2009. THREE interviews in 2009 and this place hired me. So, don't get discouraged when you only have a couple of interviews in a long time span. You never know what could happen.

Just started a contract job with my old company. Right now I am the team lead of 3 contract employees, with me the only one that has 10+ years with the company. Helping them to get set up with the systems and connecting them to people I've known for years to help them succeed. It's a 3 month contract; I believe after that I'll have my contract terminated and they will be made entry level offers. They are VERY quick learners and motivated. Me..... not so much any more.
I can relate to the layoff after a prolong UE experience, finding a new job you do well and then being laid off again.... The second time around hurts worse. This is maybe the fourth time(contract wise) for me. Plotting for retirement at 55. I want to live again and I am in a position to leave it all (employment) behind if I budget really well.
Actually grateful for contract work and enjoy it. Take every step you can to stay out of debt!
