Thanks for the kind words, guys (and lady)... it isn't completely bad, since money isnt really much of an issue (yet, lol) and I do have a car so I can get around if need be.... and take random trips to places like, ohh say ottawa at my leisure

I guess it kinda hit home last night, cuz the dealine is coming up... this was not expected, but I really thought the job market would be better this time. Ah well, I'll stay positive, and hit the pavement even harder now with resumes.

Seriously though, I'm sure you'll be fine. Brii gave good advice. Don't just overlook the stuff your overqualified for. Having something to fall back on will make it much easier to leverage yourself into a better job. Good luck sir!

also apply to those jobs that want 3-5 years. a lot of places put that to scare away people so they dont have as many resumes to go through.

Cifex,
That was funny!!!!


Dude, my last comment on this. You are at an enviable spot and you don't even know it. Marketable, young, free, and Canadian (well, 3/4 aint bad, eh?). I enjoy my job and am awesome at what I do. However, I am not a good by the book kind of guy and as a result I catch hell for stupid policy shizzle. I always say, if they want to fire me, I welcome it! My point being...."Fire me, give me a reason to find another job!" Something new, a change, diffent opportunity, fresh.....all those clich`es you got it going!

Enjoy it embrace it, hell take the invite to Ottawa (How the hell do I score an invite to Ottawa?)

If you are bored, pick-up a basic book....Roadtrip Nation. Its cool and speaks towards where you are in your life.

Also, from what I recall, it may be good for you to just move to a new city! Now, quit whining and shock the world! She'll let you know when it's all the way in and she'll love you for it!

Lets talk, we can start a business in the bustling economy Lets get the entrepurnerial spirit going!


Till then, go boarding!

hey I know how to 'work it', honey.

Haha kev, I'll definately check that book out, should I get the chance... and as far as the 'entrepreneurial spirit' goes, lets just say that part is in full effect. Technically losing this job is more of a pain cuz I'm losing my only "full-time" contract. I have two others, but I don't work for those guys regularly, only small projects here and there. I'm self employed as a contractor.

I've been debating the 'drop everything and get away' thing for a long time (since november, actually) but the more I think of it, the less appealing it is to me... I've done co-op positions far away before, and travelled for work to distant cities. The only problem is that engineering tends to take a person to no-so-interesting places; i.e. small hick-towns where land is not a premium... so leaving everything behind to go somewhere 'different' is less exciting than if I was, say, and accountant who could live downtown tokyo, and be somewhere with a social life.

it is what it is... rest assured no good opportunity will be turned down... MD is always an option, I got family (and now friends; TJ & Dan) near the area so I'll keep my eyes peeled.
