Re: Just lost my job...
Sorry to hear that. Whenever someone says they lost their job, I think of Bobcat Goldthwait, who once said:
"I used to work (at some entry-level job) but then I lost my job. Well, I didn't lose my job. I still know where it is, it's just that now there is someone else doing it."
I know it probably doesn't apply to your situation, but it always cracked me up.
If you're interested in getting into health care and are willing to relocate, I'd recommend looking at jobs in the Cleveland/Northeast Ohio region. The economy may stink up here in many fields, but health care is one of the areas in which this area excels. The Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, Summa Healthcare, and Akron General, all highly rated nationwide, are all expanding with new treatment facilities. Add to that Cleveland's plans to build a Medical Mart, based on the idea of Chicago's Merchandise Mart, downtown and there might be some good opportunities for a person with a sales/marketing background looking to get into the field.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
