My company might be merging
And I'm sure we'll all be out of the job when the time comes. It's been hinted at for years. First my marketing position was lessened and we "collaborated" with another company. We soon laid off our secretary so now I'm a glorified secretary who handles press releases and events. Now our boss is making sure our financials and computer systems match this other company. I'm currently pregnant and DH and I don't make a ton of money as is.
How can I prepare if this happens sooner than later? And how is unemployment determined exactly? I've never been through this before. This was my very first real career and I've been here 6 years.
I'm trying to look at the bright side and it'll be nice to not have an hour long commute, as well as time with the baby if it around then. It'll also be great to check out other careers and put my degree to good use.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
