Good luck...
I hope all good things come your way. One thing I learned from my last job is to collect all those resumes as folks do move on. Hard copy references in hand got me my job when I enclosed them with the job application.

Think positive. Good luck!!!

Sorry for your pain Crycket. Bummer big time. My husband and I are going through the limbo you so well describe. That is the hardest part, so far anyhow. My husband's company just closed so we are kind of in shock. I used to be in the theater and I'm considering going back. Not that there's a lot of $$$ there! Have you looked around for that, or aren't there many theaters where you are?

I wonder if there's a forum around here for people who are freaking out do to loss of work! I (and my husband even moreso) need some kind of support group because the days are getting strange.

Well, good luck and keep us posted.

I miss working at the theatre...rather aspects of it...

Funny thing is looking back, you remember the good stuff...but not really the stuff that drove you crazy!

No...there are very few theatres up here...and I keep my eye out on the one...but they haven't been hiring yet...

Right now...I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop...I know it is coming...but I just don't know when...my boss figures another week or two....

I will post the WHOLE story as soon as it does though....I have been vague up til now...

You may be losing your job, but the company that you work for is losing much, much more. They're losing YOU! I'm sure you'll find something even better, but in the meantime, use the time off (if there is any) to regroup, relax, and enjoy it. (Chocolate helps too )
