I just got downsized

Thursday, April 28, 2011


I just got dreaded call. Cutbacks, too many layers of management, have to trim. Your job is being eliminated. I'm officially unemployed. No more amazing trips around the world, no more building sales programs, no more telecomuting. It's been 43 mins, so far I'm handling it well. Of course I have 2 companies looking to see if they are able to hire me, if they both come back with a no then I'll slip into panic mode but I'll do that on Monday. For now I'm going to clean my house, type up a resume and take it at stride. It is what it is. I've loved this job but it's gone and I have to find a new one. I may have to take a crap job or two before I find the right one but I know I'll find something.

At least, I hope I will.

    I'm sorry for your loss, and I'm proud and amazed at your response. You seem like quite the dynamic and intelligent lady. I'm guessing you won't be unemployed for long. Darn them. They don't know what they lost!

    I'm so sorry !! I'm sure everything will be okay. Take a few days to relax. Then, when you're ready, start circulating that resume. Make sure you sign up for unemployment. Take advantage of it. It's there to help out in these kinds of situations.

    This could be a good opportunity for you. If either of those other jobs doesn't work out, how about considering going back to school ? It would be a chance to learn a new skill or do something you really love.
