First off want to apologize for not posting; for those who have tried to follow me; will know that I work full-time and attended classes full-time.. Anyway in a previous post I mentioned my concern about my employer laying people off and then it did not happen....Well it looks like the organization I work for has kind of taken things for the worse... They are such to be purchased by a different organization but are meeting resistance from people in the city and city council who oppose the transition. According to the company newsletter, if the sale does not go through, the organization will be forced to close.. There is no definitive answer yet but I am a bit concerned...

Sure I will be able to collect up to about two years but my concern is not getting hired..About a month ago I went for an interview with an import/export company and just when I thought that I would be called in for a second interview, they put a hiring freeze on the position.... At the same time I received more bad news. I did not score high enough on a test for a government position.

I am going to do my best and keep marching on as best as I can. Maybe a new door will open up for me once I finish in May 2012 with my bachelors degree.

Too long

It has been a long time sine my last post and a lot of things have been going on as well as happened in my life. Long story short, I was sick, had a death in the family and still trying to juggle work, school and this lifestyle.

I'm going to try and put some effort into looking for a new job where I work in the daytime. I might get desperate and take anything at this point. Yes, I should stick with this and be selective after completing my BA but I do not think that I can handle it much longer.

Only time will tell.

Well it looks like this silly sissy over-reacted about the mandatory meeting. It seems that the meeting is just going to be about the new company.
Why did I over-react? Because a similar situation occurred at the last organization I worked with. Yes I know, I know that does not mean that it is going to happen again.

I am a the curious type and when something does not make sense to me, I need to know why... Is that wrong? Is it wrong for be to have the type of personality that needs to question things that do not make sense to me at least?

It seems that it is wrong with my manager. Clearly it seems that just because I make few more mistakes than everyone else, he has this notion that I am completely incompetent.

Lately I have been getting more and more frustrated and agitated with my job. Working the graveyard shift is take more of a toll on me....
Even though the job market is shitty due to the shitty economy which is due to the budget deficit and performance deficit in D.C. I am still going to make an effort to look for the type of work where I will have the weekends off and work Monday to Friday 9 to 5.

Crossroads and uncertainity

First off I want to say Yes I am very aware of the current economic situation that our country is facing and I am going to refrain from voicing my opinion as to why and how we have put ourselves in this situation.

It looks like things in my vanilla life, work related, might have a direct effect on my lifestyle as Angelica. The organization I work for has been bought out by another organization based out in California.At the moment my department is the only department that is required to attend this mandatory meeting with the VP of Finance. Now some of my co-workers are saying that I should not have to worry and maybe they are right but, it seems odd that only one department is being required to attend this mandatory meeting. So in short I fear that I will be laid-off from my job.

I've decided to start looking for work not as aggressive as I should be. I am trying to decided if I am laid-off if I should collect unemployment for about a year and finish my bachelors degree in May 2012. Or if I should seek going back to my old job, which is hiring, and work as a produce clerk again.

The flaw with this is that yes I will be employed but I will only have one day off a week and thus not be able to go out as Angelica and worse not be able to spend time with dear friend that I care about whenever we are able to get together.

The best case scenario, if you want to call it that, is that I keep my job but at a lower rate of pay or worse case is I get laid-off.

Being made to wait three weeks is torture, yes I should be patient but I guess it is human nature for us as humans to want to acquire information as soon as possible rather than having to wait.

I'll keep everyone posted as to what is going on with my work situation.
