Looking at the economy how it is now, I guess I was expecting something to happen in my family… and it did. My dad was laid off today because of the “slow market” and because of the “recession in the economy”. When he got home, he seemed normal, like any other Thursday. About an hour later he told me. I helped him fill out his Unemployment form and I guess it made it real to me. He worked for that company for over 14 years (was supposed to make it to the 15 year mark in July). I just think that it’s dreadful how companies take people that gave so much of their lives to it and just let them go like that.
I’m just hoping that everything turns out for the best. I mean, my dad was planning on retiring soon anyway, so I guess it’s a way for retiring him earlier than expected.
I’ve been continuing to apply to place after place after place in order to find a job. I went to an employment test yesterday for a temporary job with the U.S. Census and I hope I get it. I did well on the test and now I’m just waiting for a call. Other places that I’ve applied to have gotten back to me to tell me that I don’t meet certain qualifications for the job and such. It just really brings a person down to keep getting rejections after rejections after rejections. I’ve just gotten so tired of sending in my resume and either not hearing back or hearing back because I’ve been rejected. Ugh, whoever made finding a job so hard needs to try it themselves and change this. :uhm:
