My partner just lost a job and we are in panic mode. He's in another country and just lost a job he went there for. I think it had something to do with the politics at work and the old employees there were somehow threatened by his existence. Anyhow, we're both searching for a new job in that country but if we don't find one soon, he'd be forced to come back home. He's got 1 more month before his Working Visa expires. And what's worst, we had several loans here so that he could go there. It's tough luck really and should anyone of you know if a CAD or Revit or 3DsMax training job in Singapore please feel free to drop me a message or so to help. Anyhow, have you ever been so desperate you could cry? What did you do to cope and did it work?

So sorry, laydee! It's horrible how many people are being devastated by this economy and the way companies respond to it. There was a time when I was really desperate. I was alone in a strange city and homeless for almost eight months. I'd left home and couldn't find a job because I was too young. When I finally turned 16, I got a job and a place to live in a hurry, though. I never doubted that I could do it, so I think that's how I got through it. I wish you both the best of luck!
