I feel very fortunate to have found a job after 5 months of unemployment. One of my managers said yesterday, if you are good enough you can find a job. Just not true! I think most of the people I work with have never been laid off and do not have a clue unless they or someone very close to them has been through this.

It was very similar after dot-bomb and 9/11, and here we go again.

Best of luck to you!
