So after finally obtaining a textile design job in October, I was wrongfully terminated on Nov 5th. HR’s reason: I asked too many questions and that I wasn’t the right “cultural fit.”
So, without any income whatsoever and no unemployment compensation, as they forced me to resign, I am left without any income to survive on and the holidays are right around the corner.
2018 has been my worst year ever as I’ve been unemployed for 6 months, only to finally be employed and then unemployed again...
In addition, I have clinical depression with recurrent thoughts of suicide so this whole situation is making me feel a whole lot worse. I've been in bed most of the time, I hardly have the energy to do anything. Some days I may have enough to look for work, but the moment i get rejection letters, the heavy wave of fatigue comes in and i'm back in bed unable to get up.
I am a graphic designer with over 10 years experience in the field, in addition, I have illustration and e-commerce skills as I run my own blog called cosmic funnies. I started this a side hustle but the income isn't steady.
I have student loans to pay which i can't even afford at the moment and my mom can only do so much as I await the savings from my retirement to come in the mail which will take 6-8 weeks to process. Until then, i am left with very little money from now to mid January so I hope someone will hire me even if it's a retail job..
If anyone is looking to hire a freelancer, please send them my way. Here is a link to my portfolio: https://jackiemoliner.myportfolio.com/
