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.
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.
