Not to rain on your parade, but save your money, we are headed for a major depression if something isn't done to spark the economy. War w/ Iraq will only make the economy worse.

What did you do for Worldcom? If it was technical, I know for a fact that AT&T are hiring X-MCI/Worldcom personnel. Friend of mine was unemployed for a total of 3 days then hired by AT&T for 10% more than he was underpaid by Worldcom.

I was w/ worldcom's local network operations in san jose doing installation and maintenance for its local customers. mainly installing and maintaining optical circuits (oc3, oc12, oc48, oc192 etc) , t1s, and optical (fiber)systems at various customers' co-locations.

But hey, thanks for the tip! I will definitely look into it!

btw, did your friend work for worldcom in oakland? if so, is his named Skip?

haa haa I know that would make you pretty happy. Hmmm i guess i could offer you a price break in light of your recent situation.

but it's still gonna be a little bit.

But if you really want them let me know. We'll talk about it.

Good luck dude, I'm sure you'll find another job soon.

How is that??

Its not the fact that if we go to war, its the current indecision right now thats killing us. Doing nothing right now is what is causing the turmoil. We need to either go to war already or come out and say otherwise.

If we goto war the actual conflict will only last 2 weeks-month tops.

Sorry you got laid off, it always sucks. Especially since the job market isn't so hot right now.
Many folks aren't even bothering to look for work in the bay area while they still get unemployment compensation, so if you try hard to find something you might beat others to the interview.

Only if no other countries get involved on the other side.
Like North Korea.
Just hope for the best.
I agree the indicision is not helping things.
