    I just got the call to go into my managers cubicle this morning. I got laid off. We'll the upside is I'll have all the time in the world now to peruse this site the downside is I won't get paid to do it any longer :cry:

    I guess I'll just be one of the other millions of people that are laid off in the U.S. and just collect unemployment.

    hooray me...ftl

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully something will come up when you least expect it.

    Is anyone going to have a job in this country if this keeps up?

    I don't mind collecting unemployment either but it doesn't nearly pay my bills. Too many luxuries thats my problem. God forbid I stop sending my dry cleaning in! hahaha.

    Thanks for all your support everyone its greatly appreciated. Kind of a downer day today but I'll live!

    I know what you mean. Damn me for being someone who's an official shopaholic.

    In the meantime, you should try checking Career Builder, Craigslist, newspaper ads or maybe even Monster.

    Where exactly are you located/living? If you want, I can try to help you find some potential jobs (in my spare time).

    We have gone through a boom in ireland but I stayed where I wad. Is paying off now. The money was crap at the start but now there would be no company without me. I'm hard wired into the system and the md knows if I leave we will fold.
    I'm happy where I am as I love my job

    I'll have to go back to looking again like everyone else. The thing is thats going to make it hard is that I'm in such a niche field how many companies have thousands of Blackberry users? At most you'll hear from time to time on this board people that have maybe 1-200 people. I am in the thousands and worldwide. Most companies usually integrate their IT services with mobile telecom and I have to admit that I'm not a huge IT guy. I can learn quick but if I don't keep doing it my mind starts to forget! I'll just have to ride the storm for a bit and see how it goes.

    If you can check around for me as well I would be greatly appreciated. I live in Portland Oregon. Thanks KyoOt, thats awesome of you!

    Only problem with that is my unwillingness to move to Canada. I think I might have found another mobile telecom job I just sent my resume in yesterday and got a call back with a brief phone interview. I'm definitely positive this company isn't the same size as Daimler(my last company) but it will have to do for now!
