        Oh, I'm sorry Kate! That really sucks

        Good luck in the job search. I'll be crossing my fingers that this will all work out for the best and you'll have something even better soon ...

        Hang in there.

        Hi Kate - Just checked with our recruiting people, no luck with openings for marketing in MA. Do have two in Chicago, though.

        I'll check with some friends and see if anyone knows of any openings!

          Oh Kate, I'm so sorry!!! That stinks!!! Have you checked craigslist and monster?

          You know what's funny - I wish they would lay me off here. I've been here for 7.5 years so I know my serverance package would be good. And I would love a little time off before my wedding. LOL!!

            I get 6 weeks severance plus my 2 weeks vacation. They will also pay my COBRA through May. I will be able to collect unemployment so that's good but now Mike is panicking and putting the ring on the back burner and I think I'm most upset about that. We'll be ok financially but he's a worrier.

              So sorry to hear about that. What field of marketing are you in? Are you already in internet marketing? I'm positive that great opportunities lay ahead of you. Hope you find something soon.
