The Crap Economy on our Doorstep

C got laid off yesterday. It wasn't 100% unexpected, but we thought we had a few more months and I think we were both kind of optimistic that it wouldn't happen at all. Not so much. Thankfully, we've made good decisions along the way and we'll be ok. So that's that.

If anyone knows of any materials/chemical engineering / six sigma positions, let me know. Location doesn't matter.


  1. Sorry to hear this. Sounds like C would fit in at GE, but we're definitely not hiring right now... Good luck to you. I've heard that it hasn't been to bad finding jobs for some of my other engineering friends.

  2. I've been following your blog for a while now. I'm so sorry to hear about that! We're in the same position - DH is in defense and his contract is ending soon. What we'll do in this economy, I don't know. I have also heard that engineering jobs are not nearly as hard to come by as some others. Good Luck!

  3. I'm so sorry you're going through this, but it sounds like you're optimistic. I hope he finds something soon!

  4. Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope something comes along for him soon.
