    Good thread to have set up.
    With the times being as they are, and probably set to worsen, people need all of the help they can get.
    Even if it only moral support. It can be absolutly crushing to be out of work.
    I have been there more than once myself with the decline in Mechanical Engineering and with firms folding
    quicker than you could count.
    I fear for my Grandchildren.

    Any one in the Hereford area who can Tig weld Aluminium to a good standard. The money to start with will not be that good as we are in catch up mode again after a welder having to leave due to petrol costs has put us behind to say the least. Check out; www.ahfabrications.com to see what we make.

    Come and grow with us, we have a good reputation, full order books and a highly skilled and friendly atmosphere but as we are in manufacturing every customer seems to want it for China money, even the big companies !!!!!

    Give us a call for a chat if interested.
    If you can`t buy it, Build it.

    I hope this is the right place to put this (mods please remove if I am breaking any rules) - but one service I offer is to review CVs for job seekers and suggest how they could be improved, for a small fee. A good CV will help you get in front of potential employers. Message me if you would like to know more.

    I'm now definitely in this thread in a serious way. Currently doing technical support for a large consumer electronics outfit and have been for the last 2.5 years. All career progression from this role is into call-centre management which really is not my thing, hence the need to look elsewhere. Currently based in Exeter but would consider moving for the right opportunity (esp Southampton or London area). I don't have any particular restrictions regarding industry or activity (aside from cold calling); I've found that working with the right people makes far more of a difference than the job itself.

    In an ideal world, the opportunity to get back into sound engineering or a similar environment would be perfect.

    I've quit work, probably just enough money to limp by for six months but I can't stand it anymore. Any work for a talented print design chap with experience in this blissful interest please get in touch. I have a catalogue of unbelievable injustices built up from over the years from my current employer, and historically surviving by the skin of my teeth working for other agencies with big overheads losing key accounts through no fault of their own. Why I didnt just leave school and get a job in the police or local government, or health I'll never know - but at 45 I just feel tired out at the moment. If nothing comes up I'll be over beachy head but be sure to leave a will for the hifi!

    I'll be getting a website up soon so watch this space. My new jobs sorting out my mums house now she's passed on as I have a share of that, and looking after her little dog that the boss advised me to get put down, as he affected my socialising with a key client!

    Well done Chris

    I know you have had an awful time with those tossers, it must have taken some guts mate.

    ...I went to a funeral, which was very sad, and then I popped into Hi-fi Serious, to pick up a top of the range Bang & Olufson stereo system...

    Best news I've heard in a long while mate.

    Give yourself a few weeks of self indulgent R & R to get your head together and then dive back into the rat race raring to go.

    You'll cope easily enoug and will soon realise that it's the best move you've ever made.

    Now, about that will
    It's all about the music (and transducers).
    Meh! to the rest.

    Your ex-boss sounds like a lovely guy! I've been in a vaguely similar situation in the past, and getting away from it was the best thing I ever did.

    Good luck Chris - sounds like you REALLY need the break. Maybe consider teaching yourself some new skills (and I don't mean with a satsuma and a ballgag ) once you've had a decent break?

    Cheers, sod.

    Chris, I'd suggest you spend an hour or two thinking through what you liked / disliked about previous jobs and what value you personally put on various work criteria (job security, income, responsibility, flexibility, location, culture, development opportunities etc. etc.).

    I had cause to do this (fairly formally) about a year ago. It obviously won't guarantee anything but it may help prioritise things when searching / applying / choosing between job offers or learning new skills.

    PM if you want more info.

    Good luck.
