Found out today that of the 3 people in my office (myself, salesguy, secretary), they're firing our salesguy because the company can't pay for him anymore.

I asked our GM if I should reconsider buying a house in the next two months and he just nodded.

Good buy awesome house credit, hello looking for a new job before they shut this crap hole down. Oh well, at least I have warning.

Screw it, it's still appropriate:

RAAAAAAAAAAGE

I have to admit, I feel lucky to have job security after seeing the things going on around me. I guess I picked the right industry to work in (telecom).

Good luck in your job search. I know several people looking right now Sad

Some places hire right out of university. However, if you don't prove your worth quickly, these same places tend to have high new hire turnover.

Try getting an internship with a big company that has a reputation of hiring on the good interns.
