Whaaaaat?? Are you serious?

I know what a crazy and infuriating time you must be going through. I was so upset and confused when I got laid off last year. You'll get through it, and it will def be for the better. Keep your chin up and let me know if you want some HR advice. texpatblog@googlemail.com

Jane,

What an awful blow! (Been there, trying to get through it). Hang in there, you'll make it.

Oh no. :( I'm so sorry. *sends positive vibes* xxxxxx

Oh no. I'm so sorry.

At least you have some warning. I know you're going to find a great job. (What is it you do, again?)

I'm so sorry and it is nice that you have warning to prepare and find a job internally or externally.

I'm so sorry, lady. I hope something better comes your way.

I'm so sorry.I hope you can find something or something comes up soon! Those people don't know what they're losing!

Oh no! Hopefully by October you'll feel that this is a blessing in disguise. Upwards and onwards and all that. It's great that you have so much notice, but also awful that you'll have to go in to the office for the next 2 months knowing there's a dead-end. LAME.

I'm sorry! That's so rough! I hope that you bounce back and find a job that you love soon.

That's not cool at all--I am so very sorry. I'm wishing you so much luck finding a job that makes you 1,000 times happier than this one ever did.

:(. I don't know what you do, but here's to finding a new and better gig soon.

Hit me up in AIM. There are going to be some openings over here.

Kim said...

I'm so sorry. This sucks big time. Hopefully you'll be able to find a new job before your other one ends.

Goddamn this sucks.

Hi Jane

So sorry to hear your news - I know how much that sucks because I got made redundant last year.

It was pretty crappy at the time, but looking back on it now I can see that it gave me the kick in the bum that I needed to change my life and now I'm much, much happier than I ever was and life is good.

Things will turn around for you - one door closes and another one opens and all that.

Good luck!

Tuppence
