Just look at how many people you just met right here! YOU ARE NOT ALONE! We all have a story to tell and since you just graduated from College, I'm assuming you are extremely young and so you have MANY, MANY more stories to create as you find your way through life.
It troubles me why this person who you admired in your chosen career field critized your resume, but didn't offer any constructive criticism? What an *ss! What did you major in? What hobbies or interests do you have? Is your hair color really auburn? Hahaha!
After working for about 31 years I was recently fired from my job due to a work related accident! Yeah, bummer... The "accident" was actually on purpose, which makes it sting more. A co-worker crashed into me on purpose to win a freaking game we were playing in a training exercise. I lost not only my job, but my entire career because this reckless co-worker wanted to win a game!
What do you think my job was? Let me hear from everyone... What are the top three guesses? Hahaha, why not play another game, I promise no one will get hurt. If someone guesses right I'll tell the entire story.
I have been out of work since October of 2010 and was "terminated" in June of this year. I stay at home alone during the week, besides going to a list of doctors, physical therapy, etc. The pharmacy is like my second home! I am suffering from depression, but since I haven't gone to see a "specialist" I can't tell you to go. I have given it much thought, but I'm not there yet. I have a lot on my plate, but I seldom ever share my problems with family and friends. I've always been their rock, the go-to person and I already know I'm a horrible friend for not allowing them to return the favor. One thing I did learn from this was that I don't have many "friends" who I trust. Only one friend has remained in constant contact with me throughout this ordeal. Sometimes one friend is all you need, right?
Sorry, this should be about you and not me....oh wait, it is...in my weird way I am letting you know I'm where you are now... This site is awesome too! I can say what I need to say and I can be heard and not judged. Advice is put out there and not forced upon you.
I don't know what state you live in, but if you do a web search for example "www.211ny.org" for new York state or 211nj.org, etc. you will find a website that offers you assistance...
What is 2-1-1?
2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember number to call when you need help or access to human services. Like 9-1-1 for emergencies, 2-1-1 provides direct, personal and professional assistance for human services. Help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in multiple languages (including Spanish).
J_ ask them where to go for free resume assistance, free counseling, etc...
You are in my thoughts and I wish you the best of luck! I look forward to your reply and if you want to, feel free to email me directly. Lord knows I have plenty of time on my hands and since I also suffer from insomnia I will certainly respond to your post or emails.
No Worries and lots of smiles!
Say what you mean and do what you say. Integrity and Pride are never taken away... They are given away. Stay true to yourself and embrace Karma!
