Another Disappointment

7 weeks after I applied, with 5 interviews, I found out today that one of the jobs I am up for was down to two people and they offered it to the other guy. I wouldn’t mind so much, but after all the discussion and back and forth on this job, I began to want it. I think I would have been able to get it if I had not wanted it.

Tomorrow is another interview.

I have to be careful not to want it too much.

    Hope you find something soon. If I get laid off,I have something like 12 years of unemployment to fall back on. EI (formally Unemployment Insurance)goes by the amount of hours but Ottawa since bill C70 last year changed some of the laws so I don’t know what they are anymore. Hope you have enough for unemployment insurance to get by on, good luck.

    It sounds like I should move to Canada. I have 26 weeks and the end is coming soon because I had a 2 month furlough last year that counts towards the 26. Any extension is tied up with the sequestration bill from congress.
