Lost my job today

This was my first job out of college and I had worked there for about 5 and a half years. I was doing so well in my old department and had even gotten rewarded but then at the end of July I got moved to a department where I was just constantly butting heads with managesment to the point where I was written up a couple of times in September. Try as I might I could not get moved to another department. Needless to say it was one of the most unpleasent work environments I've ever been in. Well around 3 today I get pulled into the VPs office and got canned. It's kind of a relief because I knew I wasn't fitting in very well with the managers I worked under. It was stressing me to the point where it was affecting my life outside of work. At the same time waking up tomorrow and not having a job freaks me out. i worked all through college and immediately found something after graduation. I was already looking for work while I was employed but it's hard to find time to schedule interviews when you are working all the time.

I'm not used to not having a job to go to. I signed up for unemployment already and have a little bit of money put away. I'm confident I'll find work but the uncertainty of when I'll get hired scares the **** out of me. What if most employers aren't hiring until after the holidays? Anyway just curious how some of you guys dealt with temporary unemployment.

Update: Finally Got a new job. I start tomorrow.

So how do you get a job after getting canned? I don't see how on earth that works unless you lie. Do you not just put them down on the resume? Say you quit?

If I got fired I'd just be really mysterious and evasive. If they asked me my work experience I'd just say that I have a very unique set of skills that makes me a night mare for ppl like you.

In the opposite position - tomorrow I have to terminate an employee for cause. He's a good guy but doesn't know the technical details he needs in order to do the job well. I'm a contract lead and my customer wants him out. Never had to let someone go before. I'm actually losing sleep over it this week as I'm putting him in the position of having to live my biggest fear - unemployed. I don't expect any sympathy but just throwing it out there that its no picnic being on the other side of the table. I hired this guy, trained him, believed in him, tried to help him through the struggles. Tomorrow I will have to give him the shock of immediate termination and the walk of shame to the lobby. Not my way to do it but more a company policy.

The first time I fired someone, I was a wreck. You get used to it. I ended up loving it. Lickily, I got fired myself before I could fire anyone who wasnt a complete loser.

Thanks - Part of me hopes it never gets easier. That said, you and your avatar made me a little happier.

Boo. But that's part of the buisness. The best you can do is learn from it and work to make it never happen again.

You've got to do what you've got to do. It shouldn't be easy, and it speaks to your character that it bothers you. I certainly don't envy you.

I recently relocated to Kansas City from Arizona due to my S.O. getting a new job here. I left my first job out of college after being there for 3 years. I liked the job, but the pay was horrible, even after 3 years. After coming here, the market for my profession was pretty bleak. Luckily, I was able to freelance for a while until a recruiter saw my website and portfolio...a twist of fate now has me working my dream job in a city that I love for more money than I know what to do with. Sometimes adversity is just a blessing in disguise. Keep your head up and stay scrappy...good things will come your way.

Good luck, brotha.

I don't think anybody would enjoy firing someone that didn't truly deserve it unless they were an asshole.
