    That sucks Buffy, cyber virus free hugs on there way.

    Not that it will make you feel any better (or maybe a little bit as it’s me!), our company are already talking about temporary lay-offs because of this sodding virus. For understandable reasons, a lot of our “long-term” projects have just been put on hold due to the virus and the sudden drop in price of oil.

    yeah its going to have an effect including job hunting!
    its the bloody yanks, they bought us out and want their 40% profit margin, nothing to do with the virus, its just the bottom line!

    thanks for the cyber hugs of course its appreciated 🙂

    Really sorry to hear that Stevo.

    I’ve been there previously obvious advice if it helps at all and this might be teaching Granny to suck eggs is network, network,network and go to work everyday at home as if you were actually at work in terms of putting in the time in researching and applying for jobs in fact work harder at that than you would have done at work, and apply to Companies that don’t even have vacancies which could put you at the front of the queue if and when a vacancy arises.

    Chin up buddie and the best of luck. Cheers 9’s

    Stevo – have you approached your employer/former employer and asked them to put you on furlough instead of redundancy. I’ve been taking advice on it last week from KPMG and its permitted to effectively ‘re-hire then furlough’
    you won’t see any cash until end of April.

    costs them nothing and it will at least give you some income (above basic benefits) until you can find something new

    just a thought
