    Well here we go again icon_exclaim.gif

    Next week, Ill officially be unemployed and will be at the mercy of fucking useless agencies and cunts who never answer faxes, emails or return your motherfucking phone calls.

    Although I will be paid out, alot of that money will be used looking for another job; sending emails at Internet cafe's (my laptop was stolen while I was up at Head Office for a meeting no less), sending faxes, on mobile phone credit, bus fare to interviews and of course a shit load of physicking myself up for interviews.

    I honestly need this bullshit like a hole in the head icon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gif

    I wasted R75000/£9500 studying.

    In the US your expenses incurred in looking for a new job can be deducted from your income tax but since you live in South Africa you will need to look into your own tax code to see if the same holds true for you. Good luck and keep a positive attitude.

    I hope you really didn't waste the money you spent on education. Learning never goes to waste, though I have been unemployed and felt the same as you do. Keep working out. You will get some wins personally that way and it will boos your morale. Best of luck job-hunting.
