Carol loses a job, Carol finds a job

Carol's recent brush with unemployment was a real rollercoaster ride. We've been making so many plans that her sudden lay off was a real blow: what about a montessori school for the baby? what about a house? what about paying off our debt? what about fixing the cavalier?

All of this was thrown into limbo for exactly three days.

3 Days!

The same day she was laid off, Carol went into professional job hunting mode. She updated her resume the same day and called her old headhunter, MK Personnel, to set things in motion. Carol also had submitted her resume to a number of places she saw on Monster.com.

Interview on Wednesday (second day after having gotten laid off), and then offered the job late Thursday (day three)... i was speechless and she was gloating all day - and beaming. She deserved to; she even managed to get a pretty good raise to go along with it.

I think it's a good idea to have a "Sorry you lost your job but you found a new one so quickly!" party this weekend?
