More layoffs in our economy

So I will re-enter the world of the employed on September first. For this I am pleased. Two and one half months almost exactly between lay off and accepting an offer. I am pleased with my offer and the company and I look forward to this new experience. With all the talk of the decline of the quality of jobs in the US, to come away with an increase in salary is exhilerating for me.
However, the news isn’t good for Boston as a whole. There are tons of layoffs and lost jobs with the Big Dig slowing down and the Fleet/Bank of America fiasco.
I know what being laid off feels like. I know what the job hunt looks like.. especially here in Boston. It aint pretty folks.. there is hope out there. Chins up folks! Treat your job search like a full time job and you’ll get somewhere. I am living proof that persistance pays off.

    Congrats! It’s a good feeling to have a job again, yes?
    I was unemployed for about two months, and it sucked. Was hard and depressing – so I feel for everyone who has been through that song…
