Welp...Laid Off Today

joy.
the project I've been working on for the past 2 years is winding down, and the client wanted us to reduce head-count. So, myself and three others were let go today.

Damnit!!
Though, my boss told me to update my resume and send it to him. he knows a good friend of him who is Director level that is looking for people. I believe him, and don't think he's blowing smoke up my butt. I've either worked with him/for him or been in contact with him over the course of projects since 2002.

So, we'll see about that. Another young guy at work, texted me and let me know his dad is a manager at his company so I'll get my resume in his hands as well.

I hope I find something soon. My wife took a huge pay-cut last year (around35%) because her job at the time was causing exacerbations with her MS due to stress.

hopefully I won't have to dole out handy's behind the 7-11 for cash.

if things don't pan out, I'll go see if I can get a job at American Burger. I know a guy who works there.

......aaaand laid off again on Thursday. The project I was on, originally forecasted to complete next June, was bleeding money and they let myself a few other 'new' contractors go.

Mother ****er.

I wish I 20 again; I would have went to culinary school.

that' awesome. that takes some stones for sure.

Im leary of getting into a huge chunk of debt this late, and (in this case) getting into a field like that. I looked into it about 3 years ago or so, and it was crazy $. I think something like $40k. which, apparently is relatively cheap by comparison to some other schools.

told the wife ' let's just say **** it; sell everything and drive OTR trucking" lol. there's a part of me that serious lol.

Don't do OTR if you decide to go into trucking... Go LTL or haul gas

Good Luck

random question; but don't a lot of LTR truckers have to cut their teeth on OTR?

no idea.. I just always see LTR gigs needing about 2 years experience. which would make sense.

just curious

Eh, yeah, I don't know how old you are but I wouldn't go that deeply into debt at my age. I spent a few grand going to school for heating and air and that was my ticket to get into what I'm doing now. I looked into trucking as well at the time but the money just isn't there to justify what I'd be giving up to go OTR.

I guess my point was don't be afraid to try to go in a different direction. Maybe look into some classes that will help you get into a related field with more stability.
