Lost my job

Yup, I lost my job yesterday. It's not something my boss wanted to do. I could tell she felt bad and it's not something she wanted to do. But the owner wanted to make cuts, and I guess my job was just part of that cut. It's definitely not a pleasant situation. Okay, it kind of s*cks. But there's not much you can do. I'm not really mad at anyone. It's just the situation I don't like. And I am a bit worried, I'm not going to lie. I feel bad, even though there's not much I can do. I am hoping that I can find something soon. On a plus side, I do have a possible interview on Monday. So, hopefully that works out, but I don't really want to get my hopes at the moment. Only time will tell what happens. In the meantime, I'll keep applying, enjoy a few days where I don't have to worry about work, spend time with my family, and just help out around here.

I am so sorry. Now the fact that your daughter cried and wanted to stay with you comes to my mind. Did she feel that something was wrong? I hope you can find another job soon.

Thanks. I didn't get to much of a chance to talk. She just said that she'd miss me. She was fine when she came home yesterday. I'll definitely take some time to talk to her tonight. I do hope that I am able to find something soon.

@LadyDuck Hopefully she's okay now. She didn't have an easy morning this morning either. But like you said, she is still young.

It really is disappointing. I was there just a little over 2 months. I think I was the first one, but I was told that there would be other cuts as well. So, it doesn't seem like I'll be the only one.

@dodo19 it tends to be last (employee) in, first out. then they offer separation packages/voluntary retirement to those who've been there long. i hope you get another job soon. maybe some businesses will need additional staff for the upcoming holidays.

@hereandthere yeah you’re probably right. First one in, first out. I’ll definitely look for jobs. As you said, with Christmas coming, businesses will be looking for staff.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this. I guess you were one of the last ones hired, so had to be the first to go. I hope you find a wonderful new job and your interview goes well.

Thanks. Yes, I was one of the last ones hired. So, it makes sense that I would be part of the cuts. Either way, I'm applying to jobs. I am currently looking at jobs from home. We'll see.

Sorry for your job loss but all the luck for your interview on Monday. Perhaps your position in your former job was among those they call "redundant" as a reason to trim down the work force. There might be greener pasture for you out there.

@dodo19 I was made redundant from an office job and I tried hard to get another job. I let out my cottage and went off on a trip around the world. I was able to work in Australia because I had a working holiday visa.

It is true. Not much I can do about losing work. I know it wasn't easy for her, and there wasn't much I could do. Thanks. The interviews went well, I think. So now I just wait.

One good thing about losing a job is that the next job would be a better job than the previous one, or at least that must be. Back about ten years ago, I changed jobs often and I always tried to find better jobs than the one I was out, most of the time it resulted positive to me

That’s definitely a good way of looking at it. It has to be a bit better. Plus you come out with a bit more experience and knowledge as well. Hopefully the next one will be a bit easier.
