    Well, it happened... I got let go today. I knew my number was coming up, every turn I made someone was there writing it down.

    So, if anyone knows of an opening somewhere, shoot it my way. I am open to almost anything right now, especially with two young babies to take care of.

    Thanks
    -Ryan

    Sounds like you are qualified for 1/2 the jobs that come up in my job searches /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Seems like all I ever find is related to software when I'm looking for CAD/Drafting/Design jobs /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Hang in there Ryan. I was 'downsized' after 10+ years with a company in April when I declined yet another relocation. Turned out for the best for sure and got a 'filler' job in May, then found my 'dream' job in July. Keep the faith......... /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Sorry to hear that man! /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif I know how it is though. My number will be coming up soon too, unless I choose to relocate to Ohio /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif I'll keep my eyes/ears open for you though! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    P.S. If you need help keeping the boys butts covered, let me know. I'm sure I can swing something for you.
