    I know times are tough and my fingers are crossed! I start my new job with the state on Friday. It was a competitive six week interview process that initially didn't culminate in an offer but with notification of a hiring freeze. A couple weeks later they called back to inform me that they begged and pleaded with HR. Despite being down five bodies, they were granted approval for just one - and this department most definitely provides essential services! I have a one-year probationary period and truly hope things ease up with the covid budget crisis. Not just for my job security but because my team is still down four people! Plus, it's kind of a dream job for me. Thank you, Lord!

    I am thanking God my husband has a good government job and high seniority right now. Literally everything would have to go under before he would lose his job, but that doesn't mean I can't empathize with people who aren't in that situation. @Maine-Marine , I'm sorry you're having to worry about this and I'll be praying for job security for you.

    No job other than being a grandfather now. Wife retired June 12th . Short of the entire US being burned down we will be ok. If it does burn we will still survive. Funny part two calls this week with job offers from contractors I work with before retiring. Thank them for thinking of me and declined. My wife was informed she could resend retirement. And they would like her to return. She is not interested.

    I'm sorry to hear that, hopefully things pick up here soon. Have you considered maybe a side job under the table or using a hobby of yours to earn a bit extra? I was laid off once and found work in a different field.
