Well, I knew it was coming, I just didn't know when. I received my 60 day notice yesterday that I will be permanently laid off on the last full week of August. The plant that I work at is closing and they are sending the business to Brazil. So this doesn't come as a surprise. Well now I have some decisions to make, do I go back to school and get my MBA, which is what I am leaning towards, or do I try and find another job. If I am understanding correctly, I can get up to 18 months of unemployment and up to $4000 year if I go back to school. Also, if anyone is hiring a mechanical engineer with a few years of experience, let me know, I will soon be available.
