This is a discussion on Lost my job. Maybe a prayer? within the Bob & Terry's Place forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Originally Posted by Patti Contractors lay people off. The fed govt. doesn't. They might RIF a job, but they find another job for you. I'll ...
Second, I don't know the level of your qualifications and education. So, maybe the next two ideas won't help, but maybe they will.
Check out especially the Junior Colleges to see if anyone needs a person to teach Industrial Hygiene or Environmental Health.
Check out adds in Am J of Industrial Hygiene
Get appropriate certification in Industrial Hygiene if you don't already have it.
Your employer is of course playing with fire. It is the guys like you who keep them from getting into deep doo. Good luck with the hunt.

"I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution, which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." -1792, James Madison
There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
I'll be saying a prayer for you as well, it's rough out there.
If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good. ~ Thomas J. Watson, Jr.
Things will work out, you just have to take it one day at a time and keep the faith.
Keep your head up, and your eyes open. I too lost my job after 6 years, was the last one they thought would go. One door closed another opened. Also, take this opportunity to do the things you didn't have the time to do before, the ones that don't cost a lot of money. Go for walks with the family, fishing, hiking etc. Read, play games, read the bible and pray. Everything will work out in the end. It always does we just have to wait for the end.
If you are willing to move to SC, the state govt is about to be hiring several people for environmental safety work. Check out www.jobs.sc.gov and check out the jobs in the Department of Health & Environmental Control

Blessings from Tennessee , Asking for others publicly to pray for you is outstanding in today's world . And I believe that the Lord will Bless you for this. I lost my job Oct 08, I quit driving a truck 12 years ago and said I wouldn't drive a truck again, I prayed on it and so did my Church. Praise the Lord he Bless me with job driving a truck over the road again. Sometimes the Lord doesn't give what you want, but he will Bless you with what you need . I will pray for you brother and I will put you on our pray list. May God Bless you and your family. John

Most maddening was a call I made about one job: I thought I was having a "good connection" with the lady, then she suddenly claimed to be distracted by her kids (working from home) and said she'd call me back in 20 min. After an hour I called back and got voicemail. Nothing since. Grrr. At least do as you say, and let me know you aren't really interested.
Oh well, just venting.

Good luck. You will be in my prayers.
