If I get canned, I'm gonna be a full time YouTuber @all caps
What does China have to do with Republicans?
I think they are dating
What's wrong with being a goober
i got laid off all my jobs on March 10. FML Hope I can find something soon.
Sorry to hear @TheNinja , its tough these days with shit by shit stacking on all at once
Try to see about freelance work too, better than nothing. If you do, take the bulk of the pay upfront and the remaining on launch. Its not rare to get screwed over where the arrangement is: pay upon delivered the deliverables.
I hear you, and can sorta feel you pain. I own a small construction company. I use to have 12 guys under my wing now I got 8 because no work cant pay them.
I've thought this too. Hard to uproot kids but maybe having a nice house with a yard and space and all that will make up for it vs scratching to get by in a small place with hardly any yard. Kids adapt well. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
Sorry to hear - Good on you for holding on to as many as you can!! I don't think a lot of people realize just how shitty it is out there. Some industries are getting absolutely crushed and I can't imagine how long they'll take to recover. Not to mention companies that will just never ever come back. Millions of people's lives ruined by this......it's gut wrenching really, it just seems unbelievable in today's day and age.
Theyve been working a bit too hard I think. Maybe they deserve a little vacation next week? a 2 week vacation I believe will help them make better decisions since making this stimulus is not an easy job. Not easy trying to find ways to rob the public.
That shit sucks. I am fortunate enough to still have a job. But I think the government should definitely be giving everyone, especially those who lost their jobs, a substantial monthly stipend until this thing is over. Fucking politicians don’t give a fuck about anyone but themselves. I think this is definite proof.
Oh I know, right now should be my busy break neck schedule. No one want's a bunch of strangers in their home remodeling right now. Sure could do roofing but after insurance and liability prices in NY would make jack shit for what its worth.
i was put on furlough earlier in the year due to covid. but i'm fortunate that i have knowledge in tech, and here in the bay area, there are always jobs around if you know your stuff.
good luck, threadstarter. with kids, it's not only tough monetarily, but even worse emotionally, if you feel you aren't doing enough to support your family.
Government cant "give" anyone anything. Lets not forget that.
Good Jaysus, not another thread infested by the "conspiracy" idiots.
My heart goes out to you TS.
Hope all goes well for you.
Sorry to hear @TheNinja.
Have you reached out to IT recruiters? That, and updating and polishing your LinkedIn profile should be top priorities.
Sorry bud! I'm on the same boat. Last day was 6/12. I live in MD but worked in downtown DC. Things will eventually turn around so keep your head up. Take advantage of the downtime to work on something you're passionate about so that you don't lose your mind. So far I've submitted a pilot script to 2 prod/mgt companies and currently finishing the outline for a feature. Take a short break to reset but then get back on the horse and use your time wisely.
Keep us updated Mike, good luck!
Sorry to hear @TheNinja :/
I hope you can follow Mike's route with the interviews and find something ASAP
