Re: How to get the most $ when leaving the co.?

So far the best idea for me seems to be quitting, taking a short-term freelance project, and then filing for unemployment when the project ends.

If I could get myself laid off I would get a great severance package, but unfortunately with the booming economy we're in a "desperation-hiring" mode this year...

C-T - actually your MN is one of our strongest areas right now - my current project is near St. Paul. WI is also very strong. I enjoy reading your Pioneer Press when I get a chance and the local economic news all sounds pretty good to me. Oh, and I like that guy there who is pushing for broadband internet as an entitlement!

I certainly would not call our local econony booming right now. Far from it. Maybe it is good for your line of business. Which is what?

We are creating plenty of jobs right now. Most of them pay about $8 a hour though.

Re: How to get the most $ when leaving the co.?

Apparently, CC is a contract worker . That is, CC does not report directly to the company having the project (or work). If that's the case, there are still plenty of openings for contract works (i.e., hardware, software development, mechanical design) in so called "high tech" companies in the twin cities, e.g., Medtronic, Guidant, Boston Scientific, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamic, Honeywell, Seagate and ADC Telecom.

However, I would not call it a booming job market. Direct positions are still very tight.
