Sorry buddy. With your skills you should be fine. Hell, find a job quick and you can consider that 8 weeks severance pay as a holiday bonus.

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Bummer, Kevin, especially given all you did with respect to the move to Colorado and back.

As everyone above said, though, you got skills, dude. Make it into an opportunity to put them to work where *you* want to put them to work. An opportunity to use 7 weeks of someone else's money to do it!

You Da Man!

Sorry to hear it, Kevin. Not much advice to give--I haven't been in that situation (yet). Came close--had gotten fed up with a preceding job and took another job (at a 20% paycut) just to get out of my last job and the next week they announced where I worked was closing.

Hang in there, use your contacts to help find opportunities (that's how I got my current job). If nothing is immediately available, use the time to improve your chances (take classes, etc) and continue to network.

got up at 6am, showered and spent about 3hrs reading up on technical interview questions since I lack the technical 'off the cuff' knowledge.

Hope everything works out for you Kevin. I've never been fired (only been in the working world for 4 years) so I can't even begin to think about what goes through someone's head at this time.

We know you're good at what you do, and if you keep plugging away at improving the gameday chat "experience", some of us might even give you a good reference.

Seriously, all the best Kev. I have great confidence your next opportunity will be better than your last- your passion shines through.

I've had several interviews and phone interviews. The common theme they say is I have a good personality and it seems I have an unquestionable passion to program, which they all liked. One that was really promising was based out of Oshkosh. That's an hour drive with no traffic and good weather conditions. End time would be 5pm, so figure hitting the road at 5:10pm, factor in winter weather conditions and its conceivable I wouldn't get home to my daughter until 6:30pm or later. I told them I wasn't interested after thinking further about it. Luckily, I'm in a position where I can do that, but in six weeks, I'd have had to take it and find a way to make it work. Plus, it was VB and I really prefer C#. I'm hoping my choice doesn't bite me in the ass.

I've got a second interview Friday at 10am and I'm pretty nervous. This is a company that I would really like to work for. Ironically, they wanted to hire me out of college (one of my instructors works there) but when they called to give me the good news, I was on lunch while working for my previous employer and they wanted to have me learn C# on the job. They offered more money, but I had to turn them down because I felt I had to be loyal to the company who took a chance on me just days prior. Now they want someone with C# experience who also has ASP.NET (this site heh) experience and if they have VB experience it's considered a plus. I'm more than qualified, however, there's a technical interview and I am God awful on the technicalities of programming.

Needless to say, I'll be studying my ass off from now to Friday morning. It's only been three days, but I hate this, I need to be working. I'm not cut out for this unemployed stuff. It's doing absolutely nothing for my ADD or OCD for that matter.
