Just got handed my notice

Post by simmo on Tue Feb 05, 2013 4:59 am

So I work for the biggest arts Festival in Australia, and they've decided to not renew my contract when it expires.

They basically want to remove the research and strategic planning portion of my job (which I was made permanent for), and want me to reapply as Ticketing Manager, which I've done for 6 years for them, while they go out to market and see who else applies. I'm basically their alternate now.

Come April 12 I'm jobless in the arts industry with a mortgage and one year old baby.

To say I'm pissed off would be a bit of an understatement.

That sucks man, but at least you got a few months' notice.

I got laid off 3 weeks ago, informed 20 minutes before the end of the work day that I was cut due to the owners wanting to cut expenditure, and that the reason I was told right at the end of the day, and not that morning was so that I could have "a good last day".

Its sucks being made redundant. I was told on the spot also, notice is better. it was during the GFC.
You get by and you will end up better for it in the long run.
Main tips I can give: most banks offer the ability to defer your mortgage or change it to interest only, just ask them.
Hopefully you will find something before it gets to that stage.

That completely sucks.

I can't offer much, but if you need any advice or assistance with CVs, interviews, etc, I'd be happy to help.
