I’m laid off.
I was given my walking papers just over a week ago.

The job search begins.
My work has been graceful enough to allow me to stay there until March 1st. This means I get medical until March 31st. Thank you for that, NC Machinery. I’ll be taking advantage — getting massages and acupuncture every week until the 31st. I have to make a dental appointment or two as well.
Yesterday I spent the evening at work. My shift ended at 5pm, I was home at about 10pm. I stayed at work re-doing my resume and applying for
one job. It was an information intake officer, or something like that. I have no idea what it was or what the job entails, but I’m mostly qualified, based on their criteria.

There was an essay portion to the application, and I had to answer each question with a narrative about why I may be capable with a customer or someshit. This, and the fact that USAjobs.gov requires you to use their version of a resume and type up all your info again, took all evening. So now that they have my information, the government is going to be receiving applications for all kinds of shit from me. That took forever to do and it isn’t worth it for just one job.

We’ll see what happens. I know of people taking weeks to get their unemployment benefits. I hope I can get mine.

I’m worried I won’t land a job soon.
