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.

That is always disheartening to hear.

Personally, I'd never take joy in removing a man/woman from their means of income without good reason.

It got pretty deflating at times. At one point I got rejected from three straight places I interviewed for, not to mention all the places wanting me to start at $11/hr. There were so many times I bombed on my interview because I was so stressed out about finding work I couldn't sleep the night before. Anyway I'm ready to start my new job.
Congrats, dude. Here's to the new job working out for you.

What I did was call my old companies HR department and ask how they give references. I was told they don't go into details, they just verify dates of employment. I also gave references of managers and co workers that I had a good working relationship with. But yeah you pretty much have to lie and pray that they don't investigate too much. I tell companies I got laid off.

Don't do like I did and take the first job offered to you from your schools job fair like I did. I worked for a mortgage company right in the middle of the housing crises. Five years of doing collections and processing loan modifications while good for a steady paycheck and benefits was a living hell at times.

I dont plan on it, even though its hard to tell people you got offered a job and turned it down with out having one. I have an interview tomorrow but have no idea what the pay grade is. Guess I will see tomorrow.
