He gets four weeks pay in lieu of notice.

We've never both been unemployed a the same time before.

I am so sorry that he was let go :( I pray that he finds a job very quickly and that you guys are provided for through this transition time. I also pray that God surrounds you guys with comfort and strength and peace during this process and that this time of uncertainty brings you closer as a family instead of causing stress in the marriage (((((hugs)))))

Big hugs and tons of prayers! There must be something out there that's so much better for all of you. God hasn't left you alone. I'm going to cling to that promise as I'm praying for you. I wish I could be there to help!

I am so sorry to hear that. I know how tough a sudden, unexpected job loss can affect a family. It happened to my family the year before last, and it was so hard. You can do it!

How are you today? Any bites that look promising? Has having a night to process things and maybe plan helped? We'll continue to pray, you tell us what you need OK?

Uggh what a loser company - their loss right? ((((Hugs)))) Just ditto-ing (yup it's a word) what I already said on facebook. I'm praying hard that he finds work very soon so that the 4 weeks of pay covers everything- or even ends up a bonus because someone wants him to start right away! How cool would that be?

I'd troll anything and everything that might be hiring & send in resumes followed by phone calls too. Headhunters are great but the personal, go-get-em touch can impress employers after staring at all the resume options out there. A month is a good amount of time but not that much to just wait for work to come to you. Maybe think about starting the un-employment process too just in case you need it. If you don't need it, you can cancel things but it might save some wait time in a pinch.

Fear not- you have God & an army of praying IV stalkers behind you to help :)
