    nah i think a part time pays more.. plus it keeps ya busy.. dont u only get like 600 a month with unemployment or something? you can get like 300 a week if you make like 8-9 bucks an hour and work 40 hours.. well i guess that wouldnt be parttime but would be temporary

    It is based off what you put in.
    It is based off your salary at least here it is. Because essentially your taking money that you paid into the system through taxes.

    They take a snapshot of a quarter of the fiscial year, the last one you worked and go off of that. When I was on it right after I lost my first job out of college I was making way more then minimum wage. And you get paid weekly.

    It makes it easier to find a REAL job too because you don't have to spend your day dipping fries you can be out looking for a job.

    OK, so I'm thinking things can't get ANY weirder when - BINGO - they do. I went in for an interview Tuesday morning at 10:00 with a "recruiting" firm (Adecco Technical - STAY AWAY), and we sit down, go over my resume, etc... He tells me he has me in mind for a contract (4-6 week) position with a firm in the Twin Cities, and he's going to see if he can get me a interview. This is Tuesday morning. So, I call him back yesterday afternoon (Wednesday), and I ask for him, and the woman says He does not work here any more! :shock: WTF!? So I said "What happened? When did he leave?" and she says "Well, he left for a position with another firm yesterday afternoon." Again, I'm thinking WTF!?!? :shock: So, there's another opportunity TOTALLY shot down!!! What's next? George Bush wants me to come work for the Government?
    I would track that SOB down and make him cough up the job source that he was talking about...beat it out of him if necessary!!! :lol:

    Actually, since that happened yesterday, I've gotten a couple opportunities. One, I got another interview tomorrow morning, and something else, a pretty unique opportunity (where a position would be created for me), has come up, and I'll be meeting with a guy probably next week.

    It's about time :roll:

    Shock -- back in the day I also went to Adecco. A friend told me about it and it turned out to be a complete waste of time also.

    Hang in there and keep trying, you will eventually land a good job, probably better than your previous one. I was laid off my job back in '99 and I found a much better job with better pay, benefits, and have been much happier ever since. I consider myself lucky to have been let go so I could begin my new job.
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!
