I got "let go" from my job today.( Real Estate) This was my first job since college, and it kinda sucks. I have guns to buy and this will hurt my gun addiction.

Anyway, I was "let go" not for performance, but for "personal reasons" turns out my boss hired one of her friends for my job. So they fired me to give her friend a new job.


Oh well, I will take the weekend off and look for work next week


Thanks for listening.

Sorry Dude.

Network hard, and don't be afraid to let the network know why you are jobless. You can't really explain in a job interview so you need to let the network pre-explain for you.

Burn the place down.

Call up your former employer's biggest competitor and work down the list from there.
Didnt you network?

UZI4you: Sorry to hear that, but at least you got a real honest to-goodness reason, I know that is little consolation, but today so many people are being let-go, just be "let-go."

I know you don't want to hear it right now, but working for someone like that, this will be better in the long run.

Guy, from the sound of it, you don't want to work there! They did you a favor. Besides, one job after college? You need to get out there and spread your wings.

As Mr. Zorg sez: "That which does not kill us, makes us stronger!"

Been laid off before...... it sucks. I just recently found another job. Something else will come along.... besides this day in age even a "permanent" job is only temporary! The days of stable jobs in the United States are over!
