Aww, I'm sorry. I know how much that sucks. I got let go in September because of "budget cuts" from a place I'd been at for almost six years and served as interim director for half a year. I got an entire TWO days notice. Yeah, thanks. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Anyway, chin up! Polish up your resume. Network! Tell everyone you know you are job-hunting. Look everywhere you can think of for new positions - online, local paper, employment office, etc. Take advantage of any free jobhunting or resume workshops in your community. I don't know if you have unemployment in Canada, but if you do, don't feel bad about filing for it.

It's their loss they let you go. You WILL find a new, better job.

I won't say I didn't have rough days, especially the first week or two, but I did better when I reminded myself to keep a positive additude and to be open to new ideas about how I could earn a paycheck.

I lucked out. I found a new job within six weeks with more responsibility, better pay, and better environment than where I was before.

It royally sucks losing a job, but try to think of it as an opportunity. I'll send good vibes your way, for whatever that's worth! Hang in there and good luck! I hope you find something as soon as I did.
