"I have had one interview in six months," said networking and information systems manager David Deitch, 37, of Sandy Springs.

Laid off in July from Turner Broadcasting, Deitch cashed his final unemployment check last month.

"I consider myself lucky. I am single, and I put away a lot of money," he said. "I'm about to cash in $2,500 from my mutual funds and move it into savings. I'm doing this month by month. I'm pretty sure I can last through July before I have to dip into my home equity line."

He, too, is downsizing his hopes. Instead of corporate America, he is looking for a small business that needs just one person to manage its technology.


I too, feel your pain. Good luck to you.
May you find a good job soon!
