Job Search Continues
I am a few days into week three. I have submitted my severance paperwork but received no confirmation. I am considering calling HR at the corporate offices, again, since not knowing interferes with my ability to claim unemployment in Maryland. I’d rather have the severance but this question was effective last time I called to get my severance letter sent out and the waiver for the package actually compiled and sent, too.
I am getting anxious because I don’t know if my severance will be paid and if it will, when. My last paycheck was paid on time and in good faith, so I am optimistic but I have nothing, written or verbal, to go on. This frustrates and frightens me.
On the search front, I have had one verbal offer but turned it down as it required re-location. It was a lead I got through a personal referral and the whole process, even my decision to decline, was very friendly. I have a couple of leads for which I’ve completed a interviews and am now waiting on offers. I heard from both today and hope to either get offers or thank-you-anyway notes soon.
Each day I pore through the job sites and other resources and send out a few more resumes. One I sent last week netted a phone screen tomorrow. Nothing else I’ve sent out in the past week has generated any responses. The opportunities I am finding are interesting, jobs I’d really like to do like building the technology to support a political action platform or doing the same for a social media concern.
Keep your fingers crossed, first and foremost that my severance arrives soon.
