Unemployed Friends

Well, it was bound to happen. Today I found out that two of my close friends have been laid off from their respective companies. One of them is my best friend, but he's lucky in that his parents can support him. (He's going to grad school in the spring anyway.) The other moved home after graduation last year, so I know she's alright for the moment, too. I still feel bad for them - finding a job in this economy is difficult.

But it's still scary and unpredictable out there! I'm so thankful that my company has still not done any layoffs. (Yet.)

know what you mean. You really feel it in NYC where so many people have been laid off. It's sad to see friends going through tough times.

totally agree. I'm not that happy with my jobs at a time and we are in a pay freeze until things with state budget clears up... but I still wouldn't try to look for another job right now in my field.

You still feel it in CA in my opinion, I know many people that have been laid off. It especially sucks in places like CA (or NYC for that matter) since cost of living is so high!
