I am a Northeastern U.grad with a 40-year, award-winning career in journalism. Retired, I still enjoy writing. Would be interested in a part-time job in writing or public relations.I haven’t gotten older; I’ve gotten better.

Discrimination by association

My Step dad and I worked at Dunham Price LLC in Westlake La. They said they where downsizing. So they laid off my stepdad. The only other person they laid off was me! It's been about 2 months and still, just him and me. I tried to tell them I have nothing to do with him. They kept saying that they were just downsizing. I said to them, " this is discrimination!" They said if I wanted to get upset, well then they wouldn't pay me for the rest of the month either! I had to bite my tongue. I'm a single mother that was doing a great job for them! I think it's wrong! I needed that money. I'm having a hard time finding a job that even comes close to the money I was making. I was finally going to get my son and I out of a negitive living situation! They r just heartless, and my main point it was discrimination by association!!

This definitely sounds like a shady move to me nicole kuzenko . It's sad that sometimes employers will do things like this, but you and your stepdad will be better off with new employers that don't operate this way. I hope you both can find something new soon!

Part Time Unemployment benefits?

Can you get unemployment being laid off even though you were only considered a Part time employee.. My wife was there for 18 years?

That depends on the State your wife worked in. I would suggest calling the local unemployment office and finding out what benefits she would be entitled to.

Hi Bruce Zepf

I echo Foard Womack comment... it is dependent on the state. I would reach out to a local agency and get some more detail. Good luck!

Facing layoff = more time facing personal matters

I think back at age 22 when I enlisted into the Air Force. I was told to only bring what I was wearing - bare minimum. Throughout the weeks ahead I was built up mentally, physically, and emotionally. The Problem I showed up on scene amongst a majority of guys fresh out of high school. Having 3-4 years experience on them also created more previous experiences = baggage I brought to bootcamp that I did not leave at home, and much that I accrued throughout my failing times at college. Instead, I allowed the new me to be created on this shaky foundation that replicates my identity - underneath the toughness they can build in a soldier.

Now is the time to go back a time or two each day - to do some self reflection - and say okay, this is the ideal point in my life to regain balance. To pull back on my spending habits and better manage my money. To enjoy what I do have so when I get back what I don't have I stay in tune with all I currently have. To maybe learn what finding stillness means to close my eyes and focus on my breath for a minute and to just be. To find experiences of letting go of judging everything as it comes to mind and begin to feel what taking control is as I gently guide myself to focusing on my breath - in and out.

If I shift one degree to the left or to the right - I will end up at a new destination. Like cybernetics on an aircraft that continually reorients on its azimuth - so can we.

Let's dig down and lean in and turn some of these ongoing wishes and wants into new habits. We can go through it or we can grow through it.

And most of all - May we all realize in trying times that relying on God as all we have - we come into realization God is all we need!

When you want to QUIT!!! HALT Hungry - Am I hungry, then get something to eat and make this decision in another moment that presents itself a little later. Angry - find your way of venting and releasing any built up energy and animosity/resentment Lonely - Get on a device and connect with someone - or invite a neighbor for coffee/tea. Tired - Honor your current limitation and get some needed rest.

Send PRAYER requests to: nickalwan@outlook.com

Sincerely, Nick #jobsearch #laidoff

Hi Virginia Borst , involuntary job loss is always a difficult experience. Strong feelings of anger, resentment, disbelief and frustration are common episodes of emotions one has to process in order to move on.

Don't be too hard on yourself. Find a way to take away your learnings from this experience and move forward. There are other employers out there who would be thrilled to have you on their team.

Give us a heads up when you're ready to resume your job search and we'll connect you to some hiring opportunities in your area. Stay Encouraged!

Hi Anna! That's awful! Reorganization can be a gamble for companies, but it's people like you who really feel what a reorganization can mean. I'm so sorry you lost your job. How has your job search been since? You can search for a job here on Jobcase! Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with :)

Laid off two months ago

I was laid off two months ago. I'm a single father and bought a house last year. I'm stressed and worried now. I've been on a few interviews but haven't heard anything back recently. I haven't received a response back even after calling and emailing the hiring managers.

Wow, no responses? Sorry to hear that, man. I think the only thing you can do is keep trying. Or can try stopping by in person to speak with them. Can be harder to ignore someone when they're face to face.

Martino, I noticed your a DeVry University graduate on your profile. Have you tries reaching out to their career counseling office for available job leads within their established corporate partnerships. Those schools are always advertising strong placement practices to encourage new student registration. They should be able to provide you reasonably good leads or alumni networking contacts. There’s a job fair in Cherry Hill on Monday in if you can make the trip up. It’s the closest opportunity to meet face to face with hiring managers I could find available in your area. Here’s the info in case you're interested, (http://lwd.state.nj.us/WorkForceDirectory/jobfair.jsp).
