Hard Times

Last Thursday, I received a frantic call from one of my friends.  She had just learned that she was going to be laid off the following day.  She has been such a great asset to the place where she was working, it was hard for me to believe that her time with them would end in this way. 

I hate to say it, but I think she’s going to have a very hard time finding a new job.  She’s very skilled, very well educated, and makes a decent salary.  In the past, she’d probably have no problem.  But now, things are very different.  The market is flooded with the same kind of people.

Right now, I have an open position in my department.  I have done very little advertising, but I’ve been flooded with applicants.  One person I’ve been speaking to will lose his job at the end of the month.  I feel so sorry for all these people who find themselves in this situation, and I want to interview everyone.  But I can’t.  There are simply too many.  And I don’t want to give them false hope.

This continues to be a time to pray.  I think praying to God will be the only thing that will get us out of this mess.
