16th June 2009 10:25God I am soooo peed off!! I was made redundant along with another colleague in the same dept at the end of March and because it came as a complete surprise it didn't give either of us much chance to get our 'CV's' together and take them with us. I'll call it a CV because I don't want to give much away if you'll forgive me. I'm talking about something that we're entitled to when we move on to look for work. Anyway I was so distraught about losing my job that it took me about a month to get my head round to thinking about this CV but I still applied for jobs that didn't require one in the meantime. On the other hand my colleague pretty much got his sorted straight away. It meant going back into the ex-job which was something I couldn't do so soon afterwards. So when I was ready I contacted a friend in that dept and asked him to have a look at something I needed done before the CV could be put together. I was aware and still am that they are very busy so I have done my best to be patient. It took him WEEKS to look at this thing for me. So anyway, once I had that done I sent back this document to a couple of people in the dept who would be able to take the next step for me. Again, it has taken WEEKS to get done - even now, today it still isn't complete. I am due to go in this evening to finalise this CV and I'm having to beg for it to be completed. I am in shock that these people can be so complacent about helping someone who no longer has a livelihood. I have been in constant contact about this - trying not to be a pain and trying to be patient only to be knocked back like a child and told that they are busy. If the situation were reversed I would do my damned best to make sure that my redundant colleague had all the tools they needed to go and get another job. I feel saddened and let down by them.
