Anyways, Jenn- tell Sam to not be discouraged. My hubby has no college degree and essentially went to work after hs. He was able to land a good job with his work experience. Ironically enough, I have a college degree and I've been rejected a time or two for lack of experience. Not all employers want the degree. Nine years of experience isn't something to throw away- people will see the worthiness in it.
As for what's wrong with his dad... that's just a really long story. He's done some really low things in the past, but I NEVER thought he would fire my husband - ever. He was planning on leaving in the next year or so, but it should've been on his terms. Who the F%&* fires their own son?

Rachel - thanks for the positive insight on your hubby. Its so hard in our world of higher education to remember that real world experience really does mean something. I'm hoping that creative resume writing will help... The other thing is that DH just doesn't know whether he wants to get another job or find a different field. He's all over the map on 'what he wants to be when he grows up', and feels like he fell into this past job without choosing it.

We're lucky in the fact that I make a lot of money, but I have a ton of student loans, and we just bought a house 3 months ago, and it needs A LOT of work. This news of course came while we have contractors in our house doing about $5000 worth of work - which has already started. We could push it off, but our house is in the low stage right now, where the work has started and everything looks like crap. So, we decided to finish the work and I'm going to pick up some overtime. We think his severence should leave us okay for a few months, so I'm just going to cross my fingers for tomorrow.

Places in philly will take experience over degree. He can start his own business with his experience. Call his fathers clients that he has worked closely with and take them

BTW- what do you do? not sure if I missed that in an earlier thread

I understand being all over the map- that sounds like me. LOL

 

Hopefully after all this passes you will find that Sam is in a better job than before and he may even thank his dad for being an asshole. It may be the push for him to find something he loves rather than something he tolerates for a pay check.

 

But if I were him, I certainly wouldn't shy away from applying for any job. My husband's job has a requirement for a BA and he still got hired. They liked his worth ethic, fresh insights and attitude. Sometimes employers like those employees they can mold. :) Your postitive outlook will certain help things go down the right path.

Jenn, I am so sorry. I remember all of the issues you were having with Sam's dad coming to your wedding and how pissed both of you were then. I cannot imagine how you feel now.

What is he interested in? This could be his chance to get started in a field that he really likes.

Let me know if you need anything.

What a good idea lol good severance and then nick his clients and screw his business - i like an evil plan lol

Where I work its the same they go for experience as opposed to qualifications, yeah they are nice but you don't need them you just need to know your job! and now he could even go back to college and get them

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good  I enjoyed my stay at both, but personally I liked the ambiance better at Dreams La Romana.  In the past 10 years or so Destination weddings have become very popular and the resorts do 100's each year. 60 guests with approx 30 rooms or so is a great group, but when the resorts have 500+ rooms they do not look at it as a large group. Most resorts are pretty set when it comes to what they offer in their wedding packages, but some may do an upgrade for the bride & groom if it's available. The benefit of doing a group block is you have the opportunity to earn group amenities based on the number of guests & rooms that book at the resort.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
