    What's the name of the "Lame Ass" company that laid you off before The Holidays? I know some companies do it then but it's just wrong....

    What are you talking about? Look at all the time you'd have off during the holidays!

    I'd take it.

    SK - did they give you a decent severence package? Severence kicks A$$!! :thumb:

    Ahhhhh........ that sucks.

    Kind of sounds like it wasn't a classical layoff, then. Was your contract up on Dec. 9?

    Ah - you damn contractors. Get paid so much you've probably got a mountain of gold stashed in your back room. ;)

    I work in HR...let me know what kind of help you need. I do interviews and review resumes, so give me a shout when you need help. Sorry to hear about the job situation--getting laid-off right before the holidays is just wrong...

    Could I send BLt2ride and Dartman a copy of my resume. I'd like to get some feedback on it. I've been doing production/assembly work and want to get out of it...BAD!

    I had one of my ex's who is a recruiter/HR consultant review and edit my resume' after a long and exhausting job search. I had no bites with my long version of my self drated resume'. I had like put in about 150 apps and only 2 interviews and no offers. I was so depressed.

    Then after the resume' edit I had 3 interviews in about 10 apps. My current employer even told me that my resume made all the difference.

    I am very happy in my new job.
