It's almost been a month since I was laid off. I have been working on a bathroom project - installing a walk-in shower. It's ready for tile now. Here's a picture:
My plan was to take it easy for a couple of months before I even started looking for another job, but the economy these days won't let you be off work for very long before those looking to hire are put off by your length of unemployment.
I finished my resume and sent it to a friend of mine that works for a company that is looking to hire someone like me. I got a call the next day and just like that, I have an interview with that company tomorrow. I'm not sure about this job, it is an electrical maintenance job and it is 50 miles away. 100 miles each day, that's a lot of fuel. But lots of people do it.
