i have a master's degree, was a top manager of a company for several years, then the company got sold and we were all laid off. 7 months and i am still unemployed. i have applied to over 20 places a week, one week was close to 50 and up to fifty miles away. sunday was my last unemployment payment. i am a single mom, really feel like crying tonight.

hey, i'm so sorry. don't give up, and if you want to let loose just... do it, okay? don't keep your emotions bottled up. keep trying, you can do it! mellowtalk is rooting for you :)

i'm so sorry, i can imagine how you feel, but the only thing i can say is that everything is going to be better, for you and your child. if you want to cry just cry but tomorrow start again and never give up

that's so hard, but because you're so educated and have such great experience it is only a matter of time before it works out. even if it means moving in with a friend or family temporarily, you'll be back on your feet soon. i've been laid off as well in a very inopportune moment in my life. my finances went to absolute shit. but i recovered, and you can too. it's not easy, but you'll be a stronger person after this hardship, 100%
