Outsourcing IT – not just happening to other people

It is happening to me.

I got word last week that my job is going to be outsourced to external contractors, with the idea that the organization will save money in the long run. I can’t say I agree, but I guess what I think doesn’t quite matter as much anymore, now that my job has an expiration date.  My last day is March 20th.

So once again, I will be looking for a job.  And I am just thrilled, let me tell you.

Sure, this may prove to be an opportunity of some sort, and perhaps I will end up with a job that is better, or at least pays more.  I would hate to think that I end up with a crappier job that pays less.  It’s hard to think about how I am going to be going through this yet again.  Maybe I can find some way to get a step up, like getting another IT certification or something.  I just don’t know.  I guess I need to find some way to make myself more competitive.    But right now, it is hard to think about that.  I guess I need to clear my head some.

So far 2015 has not been such a great year.  Aside from us having a spectacularly awful winter, I have also lost my little buddy Rerun and now my job.  And we are only two months in.  I don’t know what I would do without Kelly, or without our other furry little kids to comfort me and keep me company.

I’ll just keep plodding on.  What else can I do?
