Hello Everyone before you say anything yes this is a repost but I really need the help, as some of you read last time I'm being laid off right as I'm headed into a very tough fight with cancer, I'm trying to be tough but it's getting harder as the days go by without any treatment. I'm a Desktop/Helpdesk tech II with 8YOE (3 @ Spectrum) ( 2 1/2 @ Lockheed). If anyone can help me with referrals/ resume advice or give me some leads I will be forever grateful. Thank you and again sorry for the repost.

Located in Los Angeles

Update #1: I don't know what to say, thank you all so much. The outreach and support has been unbelievable. I am a little scared because I'm being laid off as this fight begins but all you have made this whole situation alot better. Thank you all. 🙂

    Stay strong! I also recently was displaced. Please check out these tools. www.jobscan.co this site allows you to upload your resume in one widow and then copy/paste a job description and it will scan it in the same manner that an Application Tracking System. It then shows you very specifically what changes to make in order for your resume to perfectly fit the position. At least this way you get past the auto-screening robots and have a better opportunity to get an interview.

    Also, go to www.virtualvocations.com and check it out. It’s a site for remote and telecommuting jobs that may fit better in your current schedule with treatments. There are some really good jobs on there as well.

    And finally, go to www.ricoh-USA.com I work there currently and there are a number of positions that you may qualify for based on your background.

    I know how helpless it feels to be displaced and I’m a primary caregiver for my mom who also has cancer as well. You are stronger than you realize and have good skills in a tight labor market. Something good will come your way and in the meantime take care of your physical and mental self. Cancer Sucks!

    Not to dig but it would maybe be helpful if you also disclosed the issue you are having.

    Help doesn't necessarily only come in the form of a new job

      I didn't want to put it because I didn't want to bring anyone down but I'll do it.

      I understand a new job doesn't necessarily mean the best help but it gives me the best fighting chance.

  • Why don't you go on FMLA? That willl prevent your employer to lay you off and you will get few months to find a job. I know of someone who exactly did this in similar situation.
