i was here the other day, read the postings of someone losing their job and being downsized.
this happened to me last year. i was laid off form a job i really liked from a company that i really liked. after 7 years i had planned on being there for another 10 years and going on to retire. didn't work out that way.
so now what?
it took me a while to climb out of depression as well as a double-up of my meds when my company sent me a notice after 4 months that the lay off was permament. by christmas i was beginning to see things in a better light. but boy what an ugly year.
financially we are ok with my wife working and a small infusion of cash from our emergency funds. i've been working out of my house at small jobs-- but am not sure this is really right fit for me.
what i want to do is work part time doing clerical work--
accounts payable/receivable and/or some bookkeepping work.
what i don't have are current skills in those areas that show. i can do the work/just am not familiar with the computer programs they use now-a-days. I learned to accounting with a pencil and paper.
so how do i get to where i want to be?
