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?
ETA from the webmistress (Kelly): Geoff’s resume has been updated and is here.
