I'm so sorry to hear that you're one of those who got laid off because of the recession. Our company got hit by recession, too. Although they say that they're following the Labor Code - which states that companies should not lay off employees, instead they should just cut the number of working hours. Anyway, I'm working full time still, and thank God for that. But I was one of those employees in our company who almost become part-time worker, and I was unable to accept that. I thought of resigning and looking for another job, but I like my current job and I just couldn't afford to undergo the processes of interviews and exams at the moment, since I am the only person in our family who has a decent, well-paying job. The rest of my family members lost their jobs, too, so now, I am supporting two families - my parents and my brother, plus my aunts and her kids with my other high schooler cousin who I am helping out with his education. Given a better chance and opportunity, I will find myself a better job, because although I like my work, the company doesn't give us benefits or incentives like they used to before the recession, and the chances of promotion or career growth is really slim.

Situation is very bad at the moment. People are getting fired left and right. And obviously they are frantically searching for jobs but where are the jobs. Very very few companies are hiring. Also the competition is so high that the average worker stands no chance of landing onto a job in this market. Thankfully by God's grace I still have my job but I am also feeling insecure. My heart reaches out to all people who have lost their job and may the economy have a speedy recovery.

I am also looking for a job right now. I wasn't fired, but my husband and I recently had to move because of his job, so now I need to find something to do in our new town. It is definitely not a good time to be looking for jobs! It seems like there are almost no job openings here. I have found a few job openings in the local area here, but they are in different fields than what I am trained in, so I am not really qualified for them, unfortunately. I have filled out a few applications here so far, but I haven't heard anything back yet, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that I'll hear back from someone in the next couple weeks. Anyway, hopefully we will all be able to find the jobs that we need! Good luck with your job search!

Hello sweetychandy7 I have been looking for a new job for the past 2 years... I do have a job now but my hours were cut immensely... I'm being picky on what jobs I apply for right now tho. However, I recently put the job hunting on a pause... my youngest is going on the 14th to get her tonsils removed... so I wanna wait til she's healed before I bring the job hunting back in action. I'm so sorry that you lost your job!
