    Yeah i just got the pink slip a couple weeks ago. Was working for a diesel performance company that derives 95% of its business from the states. With all this war crap and the overall state of the U.S. economy our business went into the shitter, so myself as well as a few others get a 6 month paid holiday Aww well more time to ride

    I was laid off months ago and recently missed out on a good job opportunity but will hopefully be back with the railroad in three weeks or so.

    Wow, congrats orbit! I mean on the designation, not on the unemployededness.

    I'm sort of unemployed right now too. The position I was covering was for a lady that was on maternity leave...she came back, and now I'm looking for work. I'm still employed by them, just don't have an office in which to park my ass....but seeing as they're the largest company in Canada, I'm hopeful that I should be able to find something.

    But I'm also a full-time student...so I don't think I'm allowed to consider myself unemployed.

    They can't lay me off here.

    The job market plain SUCKS! I am a coop student at UBC and almost no one has been able to land a job because the competition is so fierce. I sure hope things are better when it is time for me to graduate...

    B-r-a-d-l-e-y...Why? Because I'm Bradley!

    i was a contract switch/field tech for a wireless company in the US. i would love to be a tech again but im pretty sure i wont be able to find a position anytime soon in the lower mainland. my brain is losing a lot of what it knew from lack of use, but i can pick it up again really quick. i didnt know bell is out this way, most of their stuff is run from the east isnt it?

    hmmm, head hunters eh?
