What's So Funny About Unemployment?

The good side of job loss

with one comment

While checking my social media accounts — which sounds so much more sophisticated than “I was on Twitter” — this morning, I found a link to a TweetMyJobs.com article on job loss.

It mentioned an episode of one of the funniest sitcoms of all time, “Seinfeld,” when George accidently had a busboy fired — and the busboy’s life was saved because he had been fired. The post asked if there could be reasons why your job loss could be good news for you.

My job loss has been good in some ways. It gave me time to volunteer for a good cause or two. I’ve met some great people in the Ferndale Career Center support groups and through career counseling.

And, of course, to make a long story short, I started this blog.

  1. I’ve always landed in a better job / life position than the one I lost, even in this economy. This time I’ve made some Soc Media connections (via FCC) and have a chance to finish school like I’ve always wanted to.
