I'm skeered. I need a boost of bravery. I'm meeting with the Director of HR and my Director at noon and I will be getting my official written notice.
EAK!

Oh - Oops!

This is the official notice they are letting me go. The severance package will be in this.

Meanwhile, I went to a public seminar last night sponsored by a department here that I have applied for a position at, and I introduced myself to the Director. Hope that I didn't come across as an annoying keener, lol.

That's right! You can take the time to find something you really want, instead of taking whatever comes along.

I will admit I have a selfish vested interest in all this...puppy playdates!!!!!!! =D

And shopping, and lunches at Hamachi... GO, BIG SEVERANCE PACKAGE, GO!!!

I REALLY doubt it will be good. It would not be consistent with recent behavior from HR!

Hey - I'll go for lunches at Hamachi now - its only a block from my office!

rock your ****, jo! (i have no idea what that means)
Bah! That's what I'll do if they only offer me a week a year, lol.

At least I look really good today, I have on my ass kicking high boots and a cute skirt and sweater. Maybe I'll tell them, unlike you I may be unemployed, but I'm still hawt! :p

Good luck. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the exit meeting. You'll be hearing things that are really important, not only about severnce but also insurance if you get that thru your employer.

Take notes.

TAKE SAMPLES OF ANY/ALL WORK YOU'VE DONE.

Take business cards from sr mgrs who can attest to your wonderfulness in the workplace.

Take copies of your performane reviews that can attest to your wonderfulness in the workplace.

In the quiet of the next couple of days/weeks, take the time to use your e-mail etc to LET EVERY SINGLE PERSON YOU KNOW KNOW THAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR WORK. Jobs often come thru the grapevine, not normal channels.

Check out any professional organization representing your career. Do they have an online job board? Networking opptys? Meet-n-greets? Sign up and get out there.

I am really sorry this has happened to you. With any luck, you won't be out of luck for long.
