I know exactly what you are going thru. Before I lost my job the end of July I had interviewed 2x for this co. I really wanted a job there. I thought I had a good chance but I, too got the no thank you letter. I applied again I think back in October at their job fair. I have not heard a thing. I called and was told they were hiring for open positions in Jan. and Feb. I do not know if I should believe that. Then the end of Sept. some guy called me as he got my resume from the internet. I talked to him but had no interest in the job. I agreed to go and interview. They were hiring 8 people. Once I got to the interview and asked some questions, it was not what I thought it was and I decided I really wanted the job. I even sent a thank you note...actually to both places. Again, another no thank you. 2 weeks ago I started a long term temp. job. I really like it there. It is only temp. but I emailed the temp agency and said I would really love to stay on there. They said they would look into it and see what they can do for me. So, we shall see. This is a very hard time of the year to be unemployeed also.
Shynsassy, I do not know where you live, but I was wondering how your unemployment works and how you can get an extension.
I have been recently diagnosed with Crohns disease...but have depression too. My Dr. put me on Effexor XR and it didn't agree w/ me so he put me on lexapro the end of Nov. Then I was put in the hospital for the 14th time in 22 months for my belly and diagnosed with Crohns. They didn't give me my lexapro in the hospital and instead gave me ativan and xanax. I thought I was ok when I saw my Dr. a couple of weeks ago...cause I finally had a diagnoses etc...but I am so low right now. My husband and I have been through a lot in the last two yrs. I feel like I can't take anymore...I am so down. He lost his job..we lost our house of 13 yrs..but before they foreclosed...it flooded and we were in a motel for 7 wks...(our homeowners insurance covered that)... btw..we have three boy's.Then a week before it got foreclosed it was finished..the inside and ready to move into again. We stayed with friends for a week and moved out onto my in laws property..5 acres in the country. Well..we live in my husbands grandmas old 78 single wide mobile. I am grateful though..we do have a place, please don't get me wrong..but a month after we moved here I almost died..started bleeding from my colon in the middle of the night and spent a month in the hospital 300 miles from here. Well that brings me to today...it's been 22 months and I finally got a re diagnosed with Crohns and am just now on treatment for that..Whewwww Sorry for the earful..I just about can't take anymore..Tam
I had forgotten about Bush's deal on the unemployment. I hope I can get it if I have to. I am temping now and have hopes that it will go perm. I really like the job and if offered perm. I will take it. Right now I am only temp but that is how they get their employees. It is tough out there. Everyone seems to want Excel, Word ect. I have no experience in it but am taking a class in it this next semester and have a tutorial set.
Tam, I feel for you. You have a tough time. I have a good friend that has Chrons and has been thru a lot with it.
