This blows...my now former company of four years is rolling our sales division into a larger business unit. Subsequently, I've been given my two weeks notice in the process.

Never had to claim unemployment compensation but looks like I will to stay afloat until I find something right quick. Really sucks at this time of year.

You have to deal with what life hands you sometimes.

Dang, Sorry Easy. And what a crappy time of year to get that kind of news.

You were in Sales?
Our Company is hiring for tech support, not sure about sales. I'll check tho.

Thanks for the kind words and sentiments everybody. I've been busily scrambling since I got the news this morning, as you can imagine. I'm at least getting my two weeks and vactaion time paid.

FYI, I have mucho experience in outside business to business, person to person sales. Especially those which benefit from developing good inter-personal relationships with the customer, which my most recent job did not...it was more sell the service and pass the buck, which I did not prefer.

I have some friends in the insurance biz who have said I should get into their line for the past year, but I had been content on where I was. I'm researching now.

What really sucks is that if I were given the opportunity to close the proposals I currently have pending I could still hit all my goals for the year, but corp. informed me not to contact any of these existing prospects I have built realtions with over the past 6 months to close the deal before the end of the year...almost like taking money right out of my pocket if they aren't closed by my manager in the next two weeks...not holding my breath.

What has made me feel good is that a few customers who were contacted by my manager have called me on their own accord expressing their disappointment and have asked me if they could do anything.

I'm also helping my dad try and fill a couple of brand new spaces for lease in New Port Richey, FL for a commission (Lowe's Center @ Ridge Road & Little Road for those that know the area).

Thanks again everyone, I'm researching to take the weekend tests to get certified for insurance sales just to get a leg up on things.
