    "made redundant" why.?

    No longer required..? why?

    simple enough.?
    I have been purchasing officer for almost 12 years ( some overseas purchasing as well), previously worked as warehouse manager , stock/inventory controller. This is what I have done in the past. Never owned business of my own. I am trying to get a new job, but one of the jobs I applied, response from potential employer was that I have too much experience for a role and pay they were offering, but I was prepared to accept it . Go figure.
    Letter I received has a tone of redundancy. Why I don't know, I was trying to get the answer but was not given one.

    Sorry to hear that Acdc, i got made redundant after one week at a job a few years ago!!
    There is still fuck all happening but very few companies advertise in print anymore. There hasnt been many jobs in there for years. Seek, indeed, careerone, Linkedin are the places to look and even they are so last year. The job marketplace has changed massively in the last 5 years, let alone the last 2. If your job hunting you cant think in the traditional ways anymore. Mining seems to be picking up just a little bit but oil and gas is dead in the water.

    Ha ha Yeah that was what he lost his data allowance for the 1st time a couple o years ago, "supposedly" letting his mates look at porn on his phone so we blocked it and then unblocked it again last year only or him to chew through his credit in a week watching YouTube so it got blocked again We've told him exactly as you mentioned, next time he'll lose his smartphone and get a poxy little el cheapo like you mentioned that can just make calls and texts

    A really nice bloke who left our brigade for QLD with his pregnant wife just carried their baby to full term and had him still born. Life's fucking cruel. That happened yesterday, today all the younger crew turned out to some old bloke who decided to kill himself in his car with a small BBQ and CO himself. Don't people ever think someone has to sort you out in the end.

    They seem to only be interested in getting the druggies and drunks through and sorted first.

    Sad how the Govt has prioritised the system

    I had to wait 5 hours in ED before I got seen.

    Triage is a wonderful thing, I do not think the government can dictate to the nurse on station.

    Waited seven hours with my son one night to get stitches in his face, the bloke next to us had been bashed in Northbridge (shop assistant) and was shitting/pissing blood and we got in before him. He was amazed we didn't get through quicker. Luckily the GP was on the tele in the days they showed all three races.

    Sometimes it is best to collapse in the waiting area.

    Makes my mundane rants seem trivial.

    Hope there is counselling available for all.

    That does suck.

    I headed out one day and the bloke around the corner that made stuff for us was out the front dry retching and his neighbour waved me down. He told me one of our other work colleagues that shared his workshop was in his car in the workshop with it running. I went in, turned off the car and checked his vitals but he was cold as a frog.

    The really fucked up thing was that he had tried previously and failed so he got the bloke to make a weird little device, which was not uncommon for him to do, which he used in the suicide. After the coppers decided it was made with no knowledge of it's intended use and confiscated it the poor bloke that made it was devastated for months.
