After being laid off at the beginning of September, I have been on the job hunt. I have been working as a temp for the last month but I finally got hired. Granted it's a $4200/yr pay cut, but with the way things are right now I feel lucky. It's better than what I get paid temping and it has GOOD benefits. Just wanted to share the news with someone other than my fiance and family. I know a lot of folks on the board are laid off right now, but don't give up. Keep plugging. Two of the 3 places I temped at wanted to keep me, including they place that hired me. Obviously I recommend temping and be really nice and helpful. Good luck. ------------------ Have good mosh-pitting!!
