Yup. Happened today. My company lost the contract that was keeping me employed.
On the plus side, I get to draw unemployment this time, so the hit shouldn’t be too hard financially. Aditionally The Boss said he’d be on the lookout for a job for me. Then, The Boss’s Boss asked if the Human Resources Dude had my résumé on file, as she fully expected him to make some phone calls for me. I don’t know if all this is just so much professional lip service, or if they’re telling the truth, but either way it softened the blow.
And, this wasn’t that great a job to begin with, so now I’m free to look for a better one.
All in all, I’m not nearly as bummed as I thought I’d be.
But I still ask for your prayers and positive vibes.
Thanks, kids. I’m glad to have you as my cyber-family.
