Warped 9, did they give you a recommendation letter? often when one is laid-off, as well as providing severance, a recommendation letter is included to help ease the transition to new employment.. If not, perhaps you can contact your manager to provide you one..
every little bit helps.. And get those resumes out NOW..it only takes a few minutes to send em out via email...and it won't interfere with your father's care too much for you to do a low level job search while you digest all that's happened to you..
Good thoughts to you and your dad.. I'm pulling for you..
Thank you. Part of my situation is also living in a small town. I'm not really sure what the job situation will be like. Perhaps I can look into more unconventional options rather than more common positions most everyone will go for. It might take me a few days to get my bearings I think. Tomorrow I will go to Services Canada and inquire about applying for employment insurance benefits for the interim, something I haven't done for decades.
