    Default Lost job too

    I lost my job last week too. We are currently eating out of the

    freezer since I don't know when I'll be able to start work again.

    Can't say it's the best way to clean out the freezer, but at least it

    was well stocked with meats.

    I'm letting everyone I know that I am unexpectedly unemployed. I've

    even been attaching my resume to my emails. I'm afraid that I will get

    offered a job and will feel like I need to take it instead of waiting

    on some of the larger employers (local universities and medical

    centers who will have great benefits). I'd need more than what I was

    making because I worked in a small local town and the interviews I

    have so far scheduled are in towns 20 miles away, therefore I'll be

    spending a lot more for gas. Let's say I get offered a job this week

    and I can start Monday, but I have an interview set up for next

    Tuesday at a place that has great benefits, do I tell the "new"

    employer that I have an appointment and still go to it? I'm

    befuddled.....

    Anggie,

    In my opinion, yes you start your job and yes you tell them you have

    an appointment and you go. IMO, you have to do what's best for you and

    your family, sometimes we take a job and something better comes along.

    It is what it is. Good luck! I hope you find the best job first!

    benefits, do I tell the "new" employer that I have an appointment and

    I'd say accept what you are comfortable with. If it's a week from

    now, you can probably afford to be pickier on where you accept a job

    from.



    If you are still looking 3 months from now, and get a job offer, it

    would likely be in your best interest to accept it.



    As long as you do not sign a contract specifying you'll work there

    for a year, or whatever, you can always decline the job later, or

    quit after you find a better job.



    With the economy what it is, I would not personally turn anything

    down, even if it's slightly less money- less money is still more

    than no income.

    That is always a tough decision to make. What about working through a temporary agency until you are sure that your resume has had a chance to get circulated. That way if any great oppotunities come your way you will be able to take them. Good luck!
