After 11 years of working at the same company IMPAC Funding Corporation in Newport Beach, CA today became a nightmare for me and my family as I have been laid off. :boohoo:

I was wondering if anybody in California can help me find a new job.

I am a Sr. Correspondent Lending Mortgage Loan Purchaser that is my expertise. This royally sucks. Because I will have to start all over again. I made $65,000 /yr. now I get nothing. I have never ever in my whole life been in this kind of situation. Anyone who can help would be greatly appreciate it.

I have attached my Resume.


I know the MODS are going to kill me for this but, I really didn't know where to put this. they can move it when they see it.

Thank you Phin betherens, I did not know who to turn to. Sorry.

Sorry to hear that buddy. It'll get better. A friend of mine got laid off recently, only to find a job making 10,000 more a week later. Hang in there.

I am sorry to hear that Pasquale. I am in a similar situation. I was in a motorcycle accident back in October (not my fault) and have been on disability since then. Doctor said I will never be able to return to my normal job as a Truck driver for Wonder Bread because of my injuries. I will have to be retrained. So here I sit almost a year later and have no idea what my future holds. I too was making between $60 and $70,000 a year (teamster job) and have been barely making it on disability with four kids and a wife to support.
Hang in there man, everything happens for a reason. We may not know why but it will reveal itself in the end. There are plenty of Mortgage company's out there and I am sure you will land another job soon.

Good luck

Dude, you will survive. What doesn't kill ya makes ya stronger. I've been laid off before and the bounce back was rough...took me 2 years to finally get back to my salary. But things are 10x better now than they were before I got laid off. I make way more money and work way less!!

Time for you to get busy marketing YOURSELF!! Thats what I did.

hit up a ton of temp agencies. I would go on temp to hire assignments only if I were you. I believe the unemployment will not be in effect if you justtake any old 1 week asignment.

also Monster.com is a place to start.

Wow, thats amazing that you can put in 10+ years and don't get a dime severance.

Even some of the worst companies I've worked for at least gave an extra paycheck and paid out your vacation time.

They paid my last weeks pay. But that is it. I wonder if I should liquidate my 401K? I might have to roll into an IRA.

Trust me, you will get taxed when you get the cash, and then you will get hammered by the state and federal in penalities when you do your taxes. Even if it is a little bit, roll it over to an IRA.:wink:

Pasquale, do you network within your industry? That would be the best path to a new position, tapping your contacts for hidden opportunities. Don't be shy about approaching them, it's humbling but many a time a company will even make a position for a great candidate. Most really good jobs never hit the market and go instead to savvy insiders who capitalize on their networking skills.

Hang in and keep talking to people, especially make the best of any business owners our presidents you may know. They may not have something right away, but if you stay positive and wow them with your expertise and personality, sometimes you'll make your own path instead of following someone else's.

Roll it into your IRA. 1) it won't be a taxable event (you'll get a 1099R, but it will show the distribution and zero for taxable dist and 2) it's not a bad thing.

You'll have more flexibility with those funds in your IRA anyhow. You most likely will not have a choice, and be forced to roll this $.

Tough times. Im in the mortgage industry to in Los Angeles and Im down 50%. But it comes with the industry and you have to adjust to high and lows. Ill keep eye out for anything and will pass your resume. One word of advice if you look on monster.com dont apply for greystone financial. I worked thier 5yrs ago and left when they reorganize the company now that place is a turnstile for new employee. They bring in motivated people, make them work hard and burn them out and fire them. Its a chop shop for the mtg industry.
