After two weeks of waiting I finally heard back and I got the job. I'm still hoping I can get a 3D job but atleast I'll have money coming in. It was at the point where after I take money out today I'll have less than a grand in my bank account.

I take it you don't subscribe to the belief that the energy you put out is the energy you get back? The world works in mysterious ways. I'm sure you'll end up in exactly the position that you were meant to be in.

I would like to post a question here:

How long did it take you from the day your company left you to actually starting on a new job?

For me, it took an average of 4-5 months from the day I was laid off to the first day I started my new job...

It has always been the same for me as well. 4 months or so.

Haven't heard back from them yet... Still a few more hours in the day. HR usually takes forever when it comes to hiring. Gotta make sure all the I's are dotted and T's are crossed I guess. The two day turn around that I was promised on Wednesday was ambitious at best.

Ugh the waiting game royally sucks.

I worked from home for about 3 years and loved it. In my situation, the job is in marketing running websites in the software industry. I had worked at a small company and we were acquired by Dell. So I was transferred into my new department where my boss was up in Chicago, most of our team was on the west coast and we even had some folks in China. So location became irrelevant and instead of going into the old office I got switched to remote.

Over the 3 years, we were sold again twice so there was tons of turbulence in bosses and goals and such. I never felt that working from home specifically caused any issues, though I did feel somewhat like an outcast because at different points my team was pretty centralized together and had that camaraderie.

I was fortunate that my bosses always were flexible about hours especially considering time zones and when others were in office. As long as my work was getting completed, they were fine with me not working early, late, weekends, holidays, etc.

From the personal standpoint it was great being able to be home. The day I got the email saying my work from home was approved was the day our first son was born. So all of the baby drama was so much easier to deal with not having to go into the office and leave my wife alone all day. I was able to go to doctors appointments and anything else without ever having to ask or worry about it. Once we started using daycare, I was able to take them in the morning and not worry about getting ready. I was able to help out my wife when she got home from work and was settling in or preparing for dinner. I could run errands, work on my honey do list, catch up on the DVR, or anything else I could squeeze into the schedule. I didn't have to spent near as much time in traffic. Best of all for me, I just had a quiet work environment and I didn't have to put up with coworkers and their annoying habits!

I eventually got downsized after the 3rd acquisition. Luckily for me, I got a job right away. I applied for it 2 hours after getting let go, and from the time I was let go until my first day at the new job was a total of 15 days. I do have to come back into the office, but at least I found something quick!

So I'm just about finished revising and stripping down my resume to apply for interim part-time work, and I was wondering if I should remove my education and accomplishments from my resume? Specifically my Communications degree and some of the work and acknowledgements I received during my time at University.

I've parsed down my skills and previous job descriptions to coincide with someone that is perfectly qualified for these kinds of jobs. I just don't want to turn off any potential employers by appearing too overqualified and a flight risk (even though I am).

Thanks in advance.

Nope I would leave my education in and acknowledgements, it shows a pattern of work.

I would leave in the education, but take out the awards unless it was quite recent.
